[NOTE, THIS IS A TEST DATASET – DO NOT USE] Multibeam bathymetry processed data (Kongsberg EM122 working area dataset) of RV METEOR during cruise M127, Fictional Bank canyon, North Atlantic Ocean


Guidelines to write the abstract can be found here: https://wiki.pangaea.de/wiki/AbstractSwath sonar bathymetry data using Kongsberg EM 122 multibeam echosounder was recorded during RV METEOR cruise M127 (WHAT, HOW). The cruise took place between 25.05.2016 and 28.06.2016 in the North Atlanic Ocean (WHEN). The survey data contain MBES measurements of the Fictional Bank canyon (working area). No bathymetric measurements of Fictional Bank canyon were found in international databases prior to the cruise (WHY).To enhance MBES data accuracy, two sound velocity profile casts were conducted in the vicinity of the working area prior to the survey using sound velocity profiler AML Oceanographic (WHAT, WHEN & WHY). After processing, these data were directly imported into the MBES Acquisition software Kongsberg SIS Seafloor Information System (WHEN & HOW).Raw data were being converted to MB-System format. Data were manually edited for false measurements and sound velocity (SVP) corrected using data acquired during the cruise. A raster was calculated and stored in GeoTIFF format.
