Multibeam bathymetry raw data (Kongsberg EM 122 working area dataset) of RV SONNE during cruise SO276


Multibeam bathymetry raw data was recorded in the North Atlantic during cruise SO276 MerMet 17-6 that took place between 2020-06-22 and 2020-07-26. The data was collected using the ship's own Kongsberg EM 122. Sound velocity profiles (SVP) were applied on the data for calibration. Please see environmental data (zip file) and the cruise report for details. The bathymetric data acquisition was carried out within the IceAge project which aims to investigate the North Atlantic ecosystem. Working areas have been selected to offer a variability of environments (e.g., variability of water depth, and geological setting (shelf, mid-ocean ridge, deep basin)). The bathymetric data were used to plan ROV dives and sampling stations as well as background for habitat mapping studies.

These data should not be used for navigational purposes.
