Description This part of DS 781 presents data for the bathymetric contours for several seafloor maps of the Offshore Santa Cruz map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Contours_OffshoreSantaCruz.zip", which is accessible from https://doi.org/10.5066/F7TM785G. These data accompany the pamphlet and map sheets of Cochrane, G.R., Dartnell, P., Johnson, S.Y., Erdey, M.D., Golden, N.E., Greene, H.G., Dieter, B.E., Hartwell, S.R., Ritchie, A.C., Finlayson, D.P., Endris, C.A., Watt, J.T., Davenport, C.W., Sliter, R.W., Maier, K.L., and Krigsman, L.M. (G.R. Cochrane and S.A. Cochran, eds.), 2016, California State Waters Map Series—Offshore of Santa Cruz, California: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2016-1024, pamphlet 40 p., 10 sheets, scale 1:24,000, https://doi.org/10.3133/ofr20161024. 10-m interval contours of the Offshore Santa Cruz map area, California, were generated from bathymetry data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Mapping was completed in 2009 using a 234-kHz SWATHplus bathymetric sidescan-sonar system. The mapping mission collected bathymetry data from about the 10-m isobath to beyond the 3-nautical-mile limit of California's State Waters. [More]
