Multibeam echosounder (MBES) data recorded during RV METEOR cruise M111 between 10.10.2014 and 01.11.2014 in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. The aim of the cruise was to quantify the deep geometry and architecture of the Calabria subduction zone and Ionian Sea lithosphere and to shed light on the nature of the Ionian Sea with OBS/OBH and deep sea seismics. Additionally the M111 cruise formed the core of an ambitious investigation covering the Ionian Sea and island of Sicily. CI Citation: Paul Wintersteller ( as responsible party for bathymetry raw data ingest and approval.
Description of processed data sources:
During the cruise M111 the Kongsberg EM122 multibeam echosounder with a nominal sounding frequency of 12 kHz was utilized. 288 beams (and up to 864 soundings in equidistant and dual swath mode) are formed for each ping with a 1°(Tx)/2°(Rx) footprint while the seafloor is detected using amplitude and phase information for each beam sounding. For further information consult The EM122 was recording during the deployment of the OBH/OBS, during seismic surveys and during transits. Responsible person during this cruise / PI: Ingo Klaucke (
