Dataset Name Bathymetry of the canyon heads, Rv. Bzibi
Time Period 1973 - 1977
Geographical Coverage Georgian Black Sea, Abkhazeti, Rv. Bzibi dynamical system (cell)
Area Type Coastal
Project Investigation of submarine canyons of Rv. Bzibi dynamical system (littoral cell)
Project Acronym
Parameters Depth
Instruments Echosounder, corer
Summary The project investigates the rate of impact of submarine canyons on the budget of sediment delivered to the coastal zone.
