Description This part of DS 781 presents data for 2-m and 5-m bathymetry and shaded-relief maps of Monterey Canyon and Vicinity, California. Bathymetry data are provided as separate grids depending on the mapping resolution. Data collected at shallower depths by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) have a spatial resolution of 2 m per pixel, whereas data collected at deeper depths by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have a spatial resolution of 5-m per pixel. This metadata file describes the shaded-relief 5-m data collected by MBARI and processed by the USGS. The raster data file is included in "BathymetryBHS_5m_MontereyCanyon.zip," which is accessible from https://doi.org/10.5066/F7XD0ZQ4. These data accompany the pamphlet and map sheets of Dartnell, P., Maier, K.L., Erdey, M.D., Dieter, B.E., Golden, N.E., Johnson, S.Y., Hartwell, S.R., Cochrane, G.R., Ritchie, A.C., Finlayson, D.P., Kvitek, R.G., Sliter, R.W., Greene, H.G., Davenport, C.W., Endris, C.A., and Krigsman, L.M. (P. Dartnell and S.A. Cochran, eds.), 2016, California State Waters Map Series—Monterey Canyon and Vicinity, California: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2016–1072, 48 p., 10 sheets, scale 1:24,000, https://doi.org/10.3133/ofr20161072. The 2-m and 5-m bathymetry and shaded-relief maps of Monterey Canyon and Vicinity, California, were generated from data collected between 1998 and 2014 using a combination of 30-kHz Simrad EM-300 and 200-kHz/400-kHz Reson 7125 multibeam echosounders, as well as 234-kHz and 468-kHz SEA SWATHplus bathymetric sidescan-sonar systems. The mapping missions collected bathymetry data from about the 10-m isobath to beyond the 3-nautical-mile limit of California's State Waters. NOTE: The horizontal datum of this bathymetry data (NAD83) differs from the horizontal datum of other layers in this data release (WGS84). [More]
