    This BGS marine multibeam survey took place in May/June 2013 in the area of Isle of May, Anstruther and the Firth of Forth on board the RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS). Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system to IHO Order 1A. Bathymetric data on MV White Ribbon was acquired by the British Geological Survey (BGS) using a Kongsberg EM3002D dual head, multibeam echosounder system (MBES). Data were acquired using the Kongsberg SIS operating system, logging raw .ALL files. Offline data processing was performed using CARIS HIPS and SIPS 7.1 SP2

    This survey area was part of a multibeam bathymetry carried out by the British Geological Survey on behalf of Scottish Natural Heritage between 25/11/2015 and 17/04/2016. A bathymetric and side scan sonar survey was undertaken using the survey vessel White Ribbon. The aim was to establish baseline mapping of the seabed (examining habitat heterogeneity and fisheries marks) within the target areas prior to the implementation of new management measures.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical and multibeam and survey took place in June/July 2012 in the area of Loch Broom and Gruinard Bay on board the RV White Ribbon. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system.

    This marine multibeam survey took place from 15/06/2015 - 23/06/2015 in the area off Belhaven Beach near Dunbar, The Lothians, on board the RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) on behalf of BGS. The aim of the project was to survey the near-shore region at Belhaven Bay to establish the extent of the sand shore face below low tide. The survey forms part of the Tyne Catchment Project, which aims to understand the dynamics of sediment sourcing, mobilisation, transport and deposition in the catchment of the East Lothian Tyne. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical and multibeam survey took place in January/Febuary 2012 in the area of the Moray Firth on board the RV White Ribbon. The purpose was to enable BGS to reconstruct the glacial history of the areas and place it in the wider context of the dynamics of the British Ice Sheet. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system.

    This marine multibeam survey took place in March 2012 in the area of Shetland on board the Northern Lighthouse Board vessel NLV Pole Star. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) on behalf of Marine Scotland. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine multibeam and sampling survey took place over two separate periods (15-18 February and 24 February - 5 March 2011) in an area at the northern tip of the Firth of Lorne, Oban Bay on board the Northern Lighthouse Board vessel NLV Pole Star. Sea floor data were collected using an EM3002D multibeam system.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine multibeam survey took place in August 2010 in Loch Eriboll on board the RV White Ribbon. The aim was improve the geological understanding of the area and the interpretation of various sedimentary processes active on the seafloor. Loch Eriboll has played an important role in naval warfare and it is believed much material, including several vessels, has ended up on the floor of the loch. Having an accurate map of such obstacles can be used to update the archaeological records and mean better marine spatial planning for future users including aquaculture. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system.
