        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.

        abstract:  NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) is the U.S. national archive for multibeam bathymetric data and presently holds over 2400 surveys received from sources worldwide, including the U.S. academic fleet via the Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) program. In addition to deep-water data, the multibeam database also includes hydrographic multibeam survey data from the National Ocean Service (NOS). This map service shows navigation for multibeam bathymetric surveys in NCEI's archive. Older surveys are colored orange, and more recent recent surveys are green.

            description:  The state of the art 30 kHz EM 302 deep water multibeam sonar is manufactured by Kongsberg, Inc of Norway. The EM 302 transducers are modular linear arrays in a Mills cross configuration with separate units for transmit and receive. This sonar offers significantly larger swath width, increased data density and resolution. Beam focusing is applied both during reception and transmission. The system has up to 288 beams / 432 soundings per swath with pointing angles automatically adjusted according to achievable coverage or operator defined limits. In multi-ping mode, 2 swaths are generated per ping cycle, with up to 864 soundings. With multi-ping the transmit fan is duplicated and transmitted with a small difference in along track tilt. The applied tilt takes into account depth, coverage and vessel speed to give a constant sounding separation along track. The beam spacing can be adjusted as equi-distant or equi-angular. EM 302 uses both CW pulses and FM sweep pulses with pulse compression on reception, in order to increase the maximum useful swath width. The transmit fan is split in several individual sectors with independent active steering according to accomplish compensation for the vessel movements: yaw, pitch and roll. The high density, high resolution, large coverage and water column capability makes EM 302 an ideal system to explore the sea bed and the water column for detection and characterization of a broad spectrum of features.

            description:  The EM 710 multibeam echosounder is a high to very high resolution (up to 800 soundings per ping) seabed mapping system capable of meeting all relevant survey standards. The system configuration can be tailored to the user's requirement, allowing for choice of beam widths as well as transmission modes. The minimum survey depth is from less than 3 meters below the transducers, and the maximum depth is approximately 2000 meters, somewhat dependant upon array size. Across track coverage (maximum swath width 140????) is up to 5.5 times water depth, to a maximum survey depth more than 2000 meters. The along track beamwidth depends upon the chosen transmit transducer configuration with 0.5????, 1???? and 2???? available as standard. The receive beam width is either 1???? or 2???? depending on the chosen receive transducer. The EM 710 operates at sonar frequencies in the 70 to 100 kHz range. The transmit fan is divided into three sectors to maximize range capability, but also to suppress interference from multiples of strong bottom echoes. The sectors are transmitted sequentially within each ping, and uses distinct frequencies or waveforms.
