Process_Description:
The bathymetry data were collected along a continuous swath perpendicular to the direction of the ship using a Kongsberg Simrad EM3000 (300 kHz) multibeam sonar system. The data are cleaned of bad navigation and depth soundings. The depth soundings are gridded into a common grid. The gridded data are converted to an XYZ ASCII format file (Longitude, Latitude, Depth in Meters).
