Information to be derived:

Summary: Using the hull-mounted Knudsen 320B/R deepwater echo sounder on the OCEANUS, approximately 1065 km of 3.5 kHz sub-bottom data were collected over the 6 days of the cruise (see map). Data were acquired in both Knudsen proprietary binary format (.keb) viewable only in the Knudsen 'Post Survey' software and in standard SEG-Y format for later processing. Multibeam data was not collected in the survey area because of technical problems with the RESON multibeam sonar aboard the Sentry.
