Gridded multibeam bathymetry of Baker Island, Pacific Remote Island Areas, Central Pacific

Metadata Updated: November 4, 2022

Gridded bathymetry at 40m resolution surrounding Baker Island, within the Pacific Remote Island Areas - Central Pacific Ocean. Bottom coverage was achieved in depths between 8 and 4700 meters. The Arc ASCII grids and floating point geotifs include multibeam bathymetry data acquired over multiple surveys by the NOAA Ecosystem Sciences Division (as of April 2015). The data were acquired using the Simrad EM300, EM3002D, and Reson 8101 multibeam sonars, with sonar frequencies of 30, 300, and 240 kHz respectively. The grid is mosaiced from data sets acquired in 2006 and 2015.
