Multibeam bathymetry raw data (Kongsberg EM 122 entire dataset) of RV MARIA S. MERIAN during cruise MSM113


Raw multibeam bathymetry data were collected aboard RV MARIA S. MERIAN during cruise MSM113 using a Kongsberg EM 122 multibeam echosounder. The expedition took place during 09.12.22-12.01.2023 from Las Palmas, Spain to Las Palmas, Spain in the Central Atlantic Ocean. Data were recorded off the NW-African continental margin and West of La Palma. The main aim of MSM113 was to realise an interdisciplinary approach, including a variety of geophysical, geological, geotechnical and oceanographic methods, to study processes that lead to the formation of large fields of sediment waves at the Northwest African margin. Sound velocity profiles (SVP) were applied on the data for calibration. Please see the cruise report for details. The data are unprocessed and can therefore contain incorrect depth measurements (artifacts) if not further processed. Note that refraction errors may occur when no proper SVP is applied. Provision of the data is part of the DAM Underway Project.

These data should not be used for navigational purposes.
