Description The New York Bight fault (Hutchinson, 1984) was clearly evident within the high-resolution seismic records acquired with a CHIRP, boomer, and 15 cubic inch water gun systems. This fault was mapped from these data. Thus, yeilding a more complete picture of the inner-shelf geologic framework of the area.
