mos118_0503a.tif -- Side scan sonar image from survey effort HMPR-118-2005-03a in the Olympic Coast national marine sanctuary.

Metadata Updated: November 18, 2018

This side scan sonar imagery of the sea floor (140-350 m water depths) was mosaiced from acoustic data collected in 2005 aboard the NOAA ship McArthurII. A Klein System 3000 dual frequency side scan system was used for geophysical surveying, using only the 100Khz data to create the mosaic. A Trimble DSM212Ldifferential GPS was used for towfish positioning. Navigation from the GPS was logged in Hypack Max. Isis Sonar (Triton Imaging International) was used to log the digital sonar packets and cable counter data. Sonar data were captured using the 300m range scale setting.
