Abstract: The multibeam bathymetry data is acquired with a multibeam sonar Kongsberg EM302. For complete acquisition and processing description, see the Polar data Catalogue Metadata CCIN 12586 and 12732. Additionnal post-processing and data cleaning of the bathymetry was performed using the CARIS HIPS&SIPS 9.0 and BASE Editor 4.1. Sub-bottom profiles showing seabed stratigraphy were acquired with a Knudsen 320-BR sub-bottom profiles, operated at a frequency of 3.5 kHz. The profiles were processed using the Natural Resources Canada software suite. Ten (10) sediment cores from various locations are stored in the Laboratoire de Géoscience marine's (LGM) core archive. Each core was logged with a CT-scan. Further analysis will be performed in the next months/years. This dataset contains high-resolution multibeam bathymetry, sub-bottom profiles and piston core data from the 2014, 2015 and 2016 CCGS Amundsen cruise in fjords of Northeast Baffin Island (Scott Inlet, Sam Ford Fjord, Hecla & Griper Trough, Milne Inlet, Erik Harbour, Eclipse Sound, Pond Inlet, Clyde Inlet).
