This GeoTIFF image is a 2 m enhanced version of a sidescan sonar mosaic collected using a Benthos SIS-1000 sidescan sonar system. The sonar mosaic has been enhanced and projected to UTM (zone 15) using the WGS 84 datum. This sidescan sonar mosaic was collected on the upper Louisiana continental slope in water depths less than 800 m, and covers an area of 329 km2. Results have been briefly summarized by Cooper et al. (1999).
