Lineage Six Sentinel-2 images from 2017 and 2018 were processed to TOA, corrected for sun glint, and empirically modelled to bathymetry, following the procedures set down by Stumpf et al. (2003), using depth survey data (single beam data) supplied by SAERI (FK-SAERI-628). A composite bathymetric dataset was created using the minimum value from each of the six models. Any terrestrial land and all values of depth great than 5 m were set to NoData.
