Interpretation of the thickness of Quaternary deposits on the inner-continental shelf within the New York Bight, derived from seismic data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey, 1995 - 1999 (Grid, UTM Zone 18N, WGS84 and Esri polyline shapefile, Geographic, WGS84)

Description Mapping the thickness of the Quaternary sediment is useful for delineating the geologic framework of the New York Bight inner-continental shelf. This in turn aids in understanding the stratigraphic evolution of the inner-continental shelf, the regional sediment transport system, and the influence of the inner-shelf framework on coastal processes. The grid showing the thickness of Quaternary sediment is an important factor in the framework of the coastal region.
