Description:
Abstract:
The Puerto Rico Trench is a tectonic plate boundary where the North American Plate slides by and descends under the Caribbean Plate. Although much of the trench lies within the United States of America's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), surprisingly few surveys have been conducted there during the past 25 years. This data set is a grey toned surface model mosaic derived from the 150 meter grid made from the multibeam bathymetric data collected during the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) science cruise 03008 in collaboration with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Research Cruise RB0303 from 18 February to 7 March 2003, Leg II of III. (Leg I and III: 20020924 to 20020930 and 20030828 to 20030904, respectively).
Purpose:
This high-resolution multibeam bathymetry image mosaic can be used in Geographic Information Science (GIS) to provide better perspective viewing and advanced analysis of geologic conditions in the Puerto Rico Trench. Remotely sensed features in the trench are studied and the information learned can be used to discern cause and effect of natural hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis.

The raw data files were processed to create a bathymetric mosaic.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The data pipeline included transferring the SeaBeam MB41 raw data files from the SGI computer to a processing laptop via file transfer protocol (FTP). The raw files were converted using Caris 5.3 Hips Sips software. The processing crew maintained the same processing procedures as employed by NOAA hydrographic field units. Once the data was converted, a Digital Terrain Model was generated for visual detection of artifacts and missed depths. The next step entailed reviewing and editing the data with Caris Swath Edit, followed with Caris Sub Set mode editing. Both editing processes allowed the hydrographer to eliminate data points that were considered artifacts or out of context with the immediate benthic area. After editing, the weighted mead grid was re-generated with a grid resolution of 150 meters. A grey scale by depth with sun illumination model at elevation 45 and azimuth 45 was exported as a tif image with an associated world file.

Process_Description:
Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.30 flagged. This is necessary to enable the metadata to be successfully harvested for various data catalogs. In some cases, this meant adding text "Information unavailable" for those required fields that were left blank. Other minor edits were probably performed (title, publisher, publication place, etc.). The metadata date (but not the metadata creator) was edited to reflect the date of these changes. The metadata available from a harvester may supersede metadata bundled within a download file. Compare the metadata dates to determine which metadata file is most recent.
