Abstract:
This part of DS 781 presents data for the transgressive contours for the Salt Point to Drakes Bay, California, region. The vector file is included in "TransgressiveContours_SaltPointToDrakesBay.zip," which is accessible from http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/781/SaltPointToDrakesBay/data_catalog_SaltPointToDrakesBay.html.
As part of the USGS's California State Waters Mapping Project, a 20-m grid of depth to the transgressive surface of the last glacial maximum was generated for the areas within the 3-nautical mile limit between Salt Point and Drakes Bay was generated from seismic-reflection data collected in 2009 (USGS activity (S-8-09-NC) supplemented with outcrop and geologic structure from DS 781. The resulting grid covers an area of approximately 550 sq km. The depth to the transgressive surface of the Last Glacial Maximum ranges between 0 and 102 meters.
Purpose:
These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public. The data can be used with geographic information systems (GIS) software to display geologic and oceanographic information.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Data points are approximately 1 m apart along tracklines and 1000-2000 m apart between tracks. 50-m cell size for interpolation is better supported along track than between.
Logical_Consistency_Report: All vector geometry and attributes present.
Completeness_Report:
Sediment thickness data points exported from Seisworks profiling software were processed within the California 3-nmi limit.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The chirp sonar instrument is deployed under the research vessel with about 10m of variation in position. The sparker position may vary as much as 20m from the navigation reference on the vessel.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Estimated to be approximately 1 m, along the track lines where data is well constrained, but may be much greater in areas where interpolation occurred.

Process_Description:
Data exported and converted with 1500m/sec velocity in water and 1600 m/sec velocity in sediment.
Process_Date: 2013
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
X, Y locations and sediment thickness value Z imported to ArcGIS format as points, interpolated to preliminary surface with TopoRaster. Because processing of the related sediment thickness map resulted in an interpolated surface that diverged from the data exported from Seisworks, the final transgressive surface was calculated by subtracting sediment thickness from multibeam bathymetry.
