        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 http://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/multibeam/
        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:  A map service showing ship tracks of multibeam bathymetric surveys archived at NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center is the U.S. national archive for multibeam bathymetric data and presently holds over 2300 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 NGDC's archive. Older surveys are colored orange, and more recent recent surveys are green.

            description:  The EM1002 multibeam echosounder is designed for high-resolution seabed mapping. It operates effectively at a variety of depths, from shallow coastal waters to 1000 meters. The system is easy to install, even on smaller vessels. The EM1002 has an accuracy which surpasses both present IHO standards and proposed revisions. The EM1002 is now out of production and Kongsberg has stopped general maintenance of this instrument. The EM 1002 has been replaced by the EM710.

                code:  Kongsberg EM120
            type:  Multibeam Echosounder
            description:  The EM 120 multibeam echo sounder is designed to perform seabed mapping to full ocean depth with an unsurpassed resolution, coverage and accuracy. The system is cost effective, reliable, and easily operated on workstations with familiar operating systems. The EM 120 is a complete system. All necessary sensor interfaces, data displays for quality control and sensor calibration, seabed visualization, and data logging are a standard part of the system, as is integrated seabed acoustical imaging capability (sidescan). The operating frequency of the EM 120 multibeam echo sounder is 12 kHz. This frequency is standard for deep ocean echo sounding, and gives a good balance between reasonably small dimensions, narrow beams, and good range capability. The system has 191 beams with pointing angles automatically adjusted according to achievable coverage or operator defined limits. The beam spacing is normally equidistant, corresponding to 1 % of depth at 90 degrees angular coverage, 2 % at 120 degrees and 3 % at 140 degrees. Equiangle beam spacing is also available, as is an in-between spacing. Other features include a swath width up to 5.5 times the water depth, data collection in depths ranging from 20 to 11,000 meters, and real-time ray bending and attitude compensation. The EM 120 multibeam system was in production from 2000 to 2008 and was replaced with the EM 122.
