          1 The bathymetry data were generated using a Kongsberg EM302 multibeam system, and recorded using Kongsberg's Seafloor Information System (SIS) software as *.all files. Collocated to the bathymetric data, bottom backscatter data were collected stored within *.all files, both as beam averaged backscatter values, and as full time series values within each beam. Realtime corrections to the data include: Continuous application of surface sound speed obtained with a hull-mounted SBE 45 thermosalinograph, Application of sound speed profiles obtained with Sippican Deep Blue Expendable Bathythermographs (XBTs) and / or Seabird CTD 9/11, Application of roll, pitch, and heave motion corrections obtained with POS M/V V.4 motion sensor unit. Each raw multibeam file was imported into CARIS HIPS and SIPS 6.1. Each file was individually cleaned of errant navigation and depth values using CARIS's Swath Editor. The files were then added to a cumulative Base Surface within CARIS, and further cleaned of errant depth values using CARIS's Subset Editor. Motion corrector values from POS M/V V. 4 applied in real-time were verified in CARIS's Attitude and Navigation editors. No tidal corrections were applied. The ASCII XYZ file was then imported into IVS 3D Fledermaus v.7 to build an *.sd file. The *.sd file retains the resolution of the source gridded ASCII XYZ data. The *.sd file format was selected for its ability to be viewed using the iView4D freeware distributed by IVS3D (www.ivs3d.com). A GoogleEarth KML file was exported from Fledermaus v.7 in geotiff format. The KML file was then opened in GoogleEarth and resaved as a KMZ file, in order to be compatible with both Windows and Mac operating environments.
