Short NameOMG_L2_Bathy_SBES_Gridded
DescriptionThis dataset contains in situ depth measurements from Singlebeam Echo Sounder System (SBES) instruments. These depths were used to map the bathymetry around ocean terminating glaciers of Greenland. The bathymetry mapping is part of the Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project. The goal of the project is to find out what contributions the ocean has on Greenland's melting glaciers. The SBES was onboard a ship so the tracks are not of a swath, but less regularly patterned as the ship is limited as to where it can traverse due to floating glaciers, ice cover and general weather conditions.
