High resolution bathymetry data around the Falkland Islands

The datasets are two ascii files which come from the compilation of high resolution bathymetry data collected by thirty surveys conducted around the Falkland Islands from 2002 to 2013 (the last year refer to the last survey with metadata. Three surveys are witouth metadata and the years in which they took place are therefore unknown). The datasets are identical with the exception of the resolution: 0.001 and 0.003 degrees respectively.
