Water depth and acoustic backscatter data collected from NOAA Ship Nancy Foster in Caribbean Sea, Western coast of Puerto Rico, Mona Island, Southern coast of Vieques Island from 2008-02-25 to 2008-03-08 (NCEI Accession 0131852)

The Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment (CCMA) completed the fifth year of an ongoing scientific research mission on board NOAA Ship NANCY FOSTER. The objective of this project was to collect a multibeam bathymetry dataset with 100% seafloor ensonification, along with multibeam backscatter suitable for seafloor characterization in high priority conservation areas within Puerto Rico. Scientists collected high-resolution multibeam in mid-water depths from approximately 10 to 500 meters.
