Description:
  • Abstract:
    •         Reson 8101ER multibeam Data were collected between
      21 August and 13 September 2003 (JD 233-256) aboard NOAA Survey
      Launch Acoustic Habitat Investigator (AHI) at Saipan and Tinian Islands and
      Tatsumi and Marpi Banks in the Commonwealth of the Northern
      Mariana Islands in the Western Pacific during cruise OES-03-07/AHI-03-07.
      The AHI was deployed independently from the NOAA Ship Oscar
      Elton Sette (OEs).
      
      The multibeam data were logged into data set Saipan
      and 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 and  observed tides from Guam tide gauge
      1630000 with a time corrector of 18 minutes and a tide height
      multiplier of 0.94 were applied using SABER postprocessing
      software.
      
      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.
            
  • 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:

      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.
