Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Approximately 2,500 km of high resolution multibeam bathymetry data were collected covering Baltimore, Washington and Norfolk canyons and areas of the shelf and shelf-edge in between them. Additional data was collected off Cape Hatteras and during the transit legs from and to Charleston, SC.
