Water depth and acoustic backscatter data collected from NOAA Ship Nancy Foster in Caribbean Sea, southern coast of Isla de Mona, western coast of Puerto Rico from 2007-04-14 to 2007-04-24 (NCEI Accession 0131853)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment (CCMA) conducted the fourth 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 1000 meters.
