Multibeam collection for RB0105: Multibeam data collected aboard Ronald H. Brown from 2001-06-26 to 2001-07-03, Victoria, Canada to Astoria, OR

RB0105

During the spring and summer of 2001, an interdisciplinary consortia of scientists, led by investigators from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, conducted a 7-day mission off the Oregon coast that focused on Astoria Canyon, a major submarine canyon off the mouth of the Columbia River. This modern-day "Corp of Discovery" mapped, explored, and documented the physical, chemical, and biological systems of this westernmost portion of the Columbia River drainage system, which begins just 10 mi west of the present mouth of the Columbia River.

Use Limitations
  • Not to be used for navigation. Although these data are of high quality and useful for planning and modeling purposes, they are not suitable for navigation. For navigation, please refer to the NOS nautical chart series.
  • These data are considered raw and have not been subjected to the NOAA's quality control or quality assurance procedures. They are released for limited public use as preliminary data to be used only with appropriate caution. NOAA cannot assume liability for any damages caused by any errors or omissions in the data, nor as a result of the failure of the data to function on a particular system. NOAA makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor does the fact of distribution constitute such a warranty.
