This part of DS 781 presents data for the isopachs for the Bolinas to Pescadero, California, region. The vector data file is included in "Isopachs_BolinastoPescadero.zip," which is accessible from https://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/781/BolinasToPescadero/data_catalog_BolinasToPescadero.html
As part of the USGS's California Seafloor Mapping Program, a 50-m grid of sediment thickness for the seafloor within the 3-nautical-mile limit of California's State Waters between offshore Offshore Bolinas and offshore 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).
