Gridded bathymetric compilation of selected areas within the Orkney Passage, Scotia Sea from multibeam echosounder data collected by multiple vessels (1989 - 2017)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01317

Summary

Abstract:
We present two new gridded bathymetric compilations of the Orkney Passage, Scotia Sea here defined by the following bounding boxes: 39.1 to 39.6 W, 60.55 to 60.7 S and 41.7 to 42.6 W, 60.45 to 60.8 S.
These bathymetry grids were compiled from a variety of multibeam swath bathymetry data acquired during 12 different cruises (see lineage). The data is available as grids of 50 m resolution in a GMT-compatible (2-D) NetCDF format using geographic coordinates on the WGS84 datum.

This grid was compiled in support of the ongoing monitoring efforts in and around Orkney Passage as part of the Ocean Regulation of Climate by Heat and Carbon Sequestration and Transports (ORCHESTRA) programme and preceding BAS NC projects, and the Dynamics of the Orkney Passage Outflow (DynOPO) project.
Funding was provided by the NERC grants NE/K012843/1 and NE/N018095/1 as well as national capability
