This 2-m uninterpolated SwathPlus backscatter image was created from swath interferometric data. These data, although they contain small data gaps, are included in addition to side scan sonar data due to the higher positional accuracy of these data when compared to sidescan backscatter. Backscatter data are useful geophysical datasets for geologic framework studies. These data can be used in conjunction with other geophysical and sample data to identifying sea-floor morphology and sediment texture.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
