Description This part of DS 781 presents data for 2-m and 5-m bathymetry and shaded-relief maps of Offshore of Monterey map area, California. The raster data file is included in "Bathymetry_2m_OffshoreMonterey.zip," which is accessible from https://doi.org/10.5066/F7F47M6T. The 2-m and 5-m bathymetry and shaded-relief maps of Offshore of Monterey map area, California, was generated from acoustic bathymetry data collected by California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) and by Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), as well as from bathymetric lidar data collected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Joint Airborne Lidar Bathymetry Center of Expertise (JALBTCX). Acoustic mapping was completed between 1998 and 2012 using a combination of 200-kHz/400-kHz Reson 7125, 100-kHz Reson 7111, 240-kHz Reson 8101, and 30-kHz Simrad EM-300 multibeam echosounders, as well as 234-kHz and 468-kHz SWATHplus bathymetric sidescan-sonar systems. Bathymetric lidar mapping was completed between 2009 and 2010 for the California Coastal Mapping Project (CCMP). These mapping missions combined to collect bathymetry data from the shoreline to beyond the 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]
