Okeanos Explorer (EX1004, EM302): INDEX - Indonesia-USA Deep-Sea Exploration of the Sangihe Talaud Region

The Indonesia-U.S. Ocean Exploration Partnership (INDEX) Sangihe Talaud (SATAL) 2010 Ocean Exploration Expedition is a joint expedition between NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer and the Indonesian Research Vessel Baruna Jaya IV, and is intended to symbolize a long-term commitment to partnership between NOAA and representative Indonesian scientific ministries and agencies. While Baruna Jaya IV conducted parallel operations in support of the INDEX-SATAL mission, this cruise metadata record discusses only the operations of NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer.

Distribution Formats
  • Kongsberg/Simrad instrument files (.raw or .wcd) (Version: 1)
    • File Specification: Kongsberg/Simrad .raw files are generated by ME70, EK60 or ES60 instruments. They contain power and optionally angular position data with each beam/frequency identified by an independent channel. See the Simrad interface specification manual for further information. The .wcd files are generated by Kongsberg EM302 or EM122 instruments. See Kongsberg documentation for more information.
