        abstract:  This data set is part of a larger set of data called the Multibeam Bathymetry Database (MBBDB) where other similar data can be found at https://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/bathymetry/
        purpose:  The intent of these data is to make high-resolution bathymetry available to the public for a wide variety of uses such as research and earth science analysis. These data are not intended to be used for navigation. Nautical charts produced and certified by NOAA should be used for navigational purposes. For more information on NOAA's nautical charts, go to NOAA's Office of Coast Survey website at: http://chartmaker.ncd.noaa.gov.

            description:  The new generation SeaBat 7125 builds on the field experience and feedback from many users around the world and brings unparalleled resolution and installation flexibility. The system is available in three separate configurations; one designed specifically for installation on small survey vessels and a 6000 meter depth rated system for either ROV or AUV use. Each of these configurations provides superlative data quality and ease of use over depths from 0.5 to 500 meters. Special emphasis has been put on maximizing operational efficiency and features such as variable swath width and roll stabilisation combined with a high ping rate and excellent data quality. The SeaBat 7125 provides a swath up to 165 degrees and uses up to 512 beams in operator selectable modes.
