About the data survey:
The SS Richard Montgomery is a WW2 liberty ship with 1,400 tonnes of explosives still on board. The survey was performed for the Receiver of Wrecks, part of the Maritime & Coastguard Agency in the UK. The survey is performed annually to check the wreck condition. Visibility in the water is zero which is why multibeam sonar is used and not a diver visual survey. More information on the wreck can be found here

At the mouth of the River Medway where it meets the River Thames in England. 

Sonar Used: SeaBat 7125
