AbstractThis map depicts the multibeam bathymetry data acquired in September 2019 onboard the R/V Nuliajuk in Pangnirtung Fiord, Cumberland Sound. The mapped area extends from the head of the fiord, where the Weasel River drains the surrounding highlands, to Cumberland Sound. The Hamlet of Pangnirtung rests on the SE shore of Pangnirtung Fiord. Glacial landforms and modern sediment processes are identified throughout the fiord using sub-bottom profiles and multibeam bathymetry.
