Description In 1984, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Office of Marine Geology, launched a program using the Geological LOng-Range Inclined Asdic (GLORIA) sidescan-sonar system to study the entire U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). From 1989 through 1991, the USGS and IOS (Institute of Oceanographic Sciences, U.K.) scientists conducted several surveys within the EEZ off Hawaii. Six surveys during that time period focused on the northwestern Hawaii region. The results of these surveys were 22 digital mosaics of approximately a 2 degree by 2 degree area with a 50-meter pixel resolution. [More]
