Description 
Summary

Data have beeen collected on a commercial basis for a variety of sites around the coast of Britain. The data coverage is necessarily patchy, being mainly concentrated along the south, south west and north west coasts of Britain. Surveys are carried out on a close line spacing (typically 25m to 100m), and sometimes include side scan sonar, marine refraction and/or magnetic coverage.
