Online link https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/catalog/pcmsc/SeriesReports/DS_DDS/DS_781/BolinasToPescadero/SedimentThickness_BolinasToPescadero_metadata.faq.html
Description This part of DS 781 presents data for the sediment-thickness map of the Bolinas to Pescadero, California, region. The raster data file is included in "SedimentThickness_BolinastoPescadero.zip," which is accessible from http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/781/BolinastoPescadero/data_catalog_BolinastoPescadero.html. 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 Bolinas and Pescadero was generated from seismic-reflection data collected between 2006 and 2010, supplemented with outcrop and geologic structure (fault) information following the methodology of Wong (2012).
