NBP03-04a Multibeam Data [Swift, J.]



This data set covers the Simrad EM120 Multibeam data collection for the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer cruise NBP0304A. The raw multibeam data were logged in approximately one hour-long files in the Kongsberg-Simrad EM120 raw format. The logged multibeam data files were transferred from the data acquisition computer to a data storage area just after the end of each day. The UNIX tar command was used to write the digital data to DAT tapes at the end of the cruise.
