Data Type: 
Marine Scotland Data Portal

A mulitbeam bathymetry survey was carried out off the north coast of Scotland between the Kyle of Tongue and west of Thurso in August 2014. The area is of interest for renewable development and the survey provides high resolution bathymetric data in order to assist in locating suitable areas for the deployment of renewable devices. The survey was complemented by drop frame TV tows providing video and digital stills in order to ground-truth the bathymetric data and provide information on species and habitats of conservation interest.
