We contracted with C&C Technologies to run the system because they had installed the EM300 system on a contracted vessel, the M/V Ocean Alert. The 30 kHz EM300 system, because it is hull-mounted, allowed us to collect georeferenced high-resolution bathymetric and sidescan data at high speeds in water ranging from shelf to abyssal depths. Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research. Supplemental_Information: This data set was compiled by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) during  the fall of 1999.  Time_Period_of_Content: Time_Period_Information: Range_of_Dates/Times: Beginning_Date: 1998 Ending_Date: 1998 Currentness_Reference: publication date Status: Progress: Complete Maintenance_and_Update_Frequency: None planned Spatial_Domain: Bounding_Coordinates: West_Bounding_Coordinate: -160.5156 East_Bounding_Coordinate: -154.2786 North_Bounding_Coordinate: 22.37425 South_Bounding_Coordinate: 18.73564 Keywords: Theme: Theme_Keyword_Thesaurus: None Theme_Keyword: GIS Theme_Keyword: Marine Geology Theme_Keyword: Bathymetry Theme_Keyword: Seafloor Topography Theme_Keyword: Sidescan Sonar Theme_Keyword: Acoustic Reflectivity Place: Place_Keyword_Thesaurus: None Place_Keyword: Hawaii Place_Keyword: HW Place_Keyword: Central Pacific Ocean Place_Keyword: North Pacific Ocean Place_Keyword: Northern Pacific Ocean Place_Keyword: USA Access_Constraints: Description and Ownership of Data.
