Swath sonar bathymetry during POLARSTERN cruise ANT-XIII/3 (PS39) with links to multibeam raw data files

By Fred Niederjasper, Simon Dreutter, Tanja Grünwald and Norbert Frey


Multibeam data were collected during RV Polarstern cruise ANT-XIII/3. Data are unprocessed and may contain outliers and blunders. Therefore the data should not directly be used for grid calculations and charting projects but need to be edited furthermore. The dataset consists of files in ATLAS ascii multibeam format including 'record control words' (*.dux). Atlas DUX data files can be processed using the open source software package MB-System ( Values of depths and lateral distances are averaged with neighbouring beams. Contact for data access
