A bathymetric compilation of Ascension Island, 2000-2017
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01236

Summary

Abstract:
We present a new bathymetric compilation around Ascension Island here defined by the following bounding box: 14.57 to 14.17 W, 8.12 to 7.75 S.
This bathymetry grid was compiled from a variety of multibeam swath bathymetry data acquired during 4 different cruises (see lineage). The data is available as a grid of approximately 50 m resolution in two different formats: a GMT-compatible (2-D) NetCDF and Arc/Info and ArcView ASCII grid format using geographic coordinates on the WGS84 datum.

Funding was provided by NERC grants NE/J023051/1 and NE/J020303/1
