Sediment Thickness--Point Conception to Hueneme Canyon, California

Online link
Description This part of DS 781 presents data for the sediment-thickness map of the Point Conception to Hueneme Canyon, California, region. The raster data file is included in "," which is accessible from As part of the USGS's California State Waters Mapping Project, a 50-m grid of sediment thickness for the seafloor within the 3-nautical mile limit between Point Conception and Hueneme Canyon was generated from seismic-reflection data collected in 2014 (USGS activity 2014-632-FA) supplemented with outcrop and geologic structure (fault) information following the methodology of Wong (2012). This sediment thickness layer was merged with a previously published sediment thickness grid for the Santa Barbara Channel region (available at Reference Cited: Wong, F.
