Abstract:
Reson 8101ER multibeam Data were collected from 15 Jan - 6 Feb aboard NOAA Survey Launch Acoustic Habitat Investigator (AHI) at Johnston Island, Howland Island, and Baker Island in the Central Pacific during cruise AHI-06-01. These multibeam data were collected using SAIC ISS-2000 software in the Generic Sensor Format and processed using SABER editing software. Sound velocity corrections from a Seabird SBE19 CTD sensor and motion corrections from a POS-MV vertical reference were applied to the data in real time. Predicted tides were applied to the data in real time: for Johnston Island predicted tides from the NOS CO-OPS web site were used; for Baker and Howland Islands predicted tides based upon the Honolulu tide station (1612340) with a time corrector of 3 hrs 48 min and a range ratio of 3.91.

Horizontal accuracy is 20m (no differential GPS correctors applied), vertical accuracy is depth dependent (~1% of water depth), WGS84 datum. These data are not to be used for navigation. Depths mapped range from ~10 - 300 m. The AHI was deployed from the NOAA Ship Hi'ialakai and concurrent mapping was done using Simrad EM300 and EM3002D sonars aboard the ship; metadata for HI- 06-01 are submitted separately.

Purpose:
The data were collected in support of Coral Reef Conservation Program goals to map all shallow (0-30 m)coral reefs in US Pacific waters and priority moderate (> 30 m) depth areas by 2009. The data are being used to provide bathymetric and backscatter data for previously unmapped areas; in support of ecosystem management requirements for benthic habitat mapping and location of Essential Fish Habitat; and to study the geologic features of the area.
Supplemental_Information:
Data were collected aboard the R/V AHI (Acoustic Habitat Investigator), a 8 m (25') survey launch owned and operated by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center in Honolulu, HI. The R/V AHI's survey sensors include a 240 kHz RESON 8101-ER sonar which measures bathymetry and acoustic backscatter imagery, a TSS/Applanix POS/MV Model 320 which measures time, position, velocity, attitude and heading, and a Seabird SBE 19 CTD used to measure sound velocity profiles.

The AHI's equipment serial numbers, software versions and sensor configuration settings are as follows:

RESON 8101-ER multibeam echosounder Transducer serial #: 201004 Firmware, dry: 8101-2.07-2D4D Firmware, wet: 8101-1.06-2F6B

R/V AHI POS/MV Model 320, version 3 PCS serial #: 474 IMU serial #: 203 Controller software: v 2.1 PCS Firmware: 2.16

Seabird SBE19 CTD: Serial #: 3029

R/V AHI Lever Arm Distances and Alignment Offsets: The R/V AHI Reference Point (RP) is defined to be the intersection of the vessel's centerline, the cabin deck and the bulkhead immediately aft of the transducer. This is marked by a punch in the deck weld at that location. Positive X means the point is forward of the RP, positive Y means the point is to starboard of the RP, positive Z means the point is below the RP. The loaded waterline is defined as the intersection of the vessel's performance wing with the hull at the transom.

POS/MV Settings: RP to IMU, m 0.80 0.00 0.08 RP to Primary GPS(port),m 0.85 -0.50 -2.29 RP to Vessel, m 0.16 0.00 0.77 IMU w.r.t. Ref.
