Summary
Abstract: We set out to achieve floe-scale 3-D mapping of sea ice draft and bio-optical parameters using a Multibeam SONAR and Hyperspectral radiometer mounted to an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). The AUV utilised was the 'JAGUAR' Seabed-class vehicle from the Deep Submergence Laboratory at the WoodsHole Oceanographic Institution.

The AUV comes with a CTD and ADCP. However these are not deployed as ... View entire text

Quality The multibeam data from Station 20120926 was affected by incorrect deployment settings that reduced the available swath and overall integrity of the final map out and along a single transect of the grid.

Ultimately there will be single MATLAB files associated with each of the stations. i.e. 20120926.mat

These will contain raw and processed data for
a) Engineering
b) Navigation (AUV and GRID coordinate systems)
c) Coordinate system information
d) Multibeam
e) Hyperspectral
f) CTD
g) ADCP
