The donated data were collected aboard the R/V Rachel Carson, which is owned and operated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Insitute.
The goal of this part of the Cal DIG I study is to collect overlapping multibeam bathymetry and Chirp seismic-reflection data offshore of south-central region of California, for the purpose of improving regional models of seafloor (benthic) habitats, sediment transport, and assessing potential geologic hazards. Geophysical and geological data from these surveys have been donated to USGS to be released,
