This part of DS 781 presents data for the isopachs for the Point Conception to Hueneme Canyon, California, region. The vector data file is included in "Isopachs_PointConceptionToHuenemeCanyon.zip," which is accessible from https://doi.org/10.5066/F7891424
As part of the USGS's California State Waters Mapping Project, a 50-m grid of sediment thickness for the seafloor within the 3-nautical mile limit between Point Conception and Hueneme Canyon was generated from seismic-reflection data collected in 2014 (USGS activity 2014-632-FA) supplemented with outcrop and geologic structure (fault) information following the methodology of Wong (2012). This sediment thickness layer was merged with a previously published sediment thickness grid for the Santa Barbara Channel region (available at https://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/781/SantaBarbaraChannel/data_catalog_SantaBarbaraChannel.html)
. This polyline shapefile provides the sediment-thickness isopachs to accompany the grid layer.
