Type of Activity: Sea floor mapping;Sea floor mapping
Information to be derived: High-resolution, bathymetric, and sidescan data
Summary: 45 km each of high-resolution, bathymetric, and sidescan data was acquired. Due to a combination of unfamiliarity with sediment types and their effect on resolution and instrumentation difficulties, the quality of high-resolution and bathymetric data ranges from poor to acceptable. The sidescan data is excellent.
