Description:
Abstract:
The bathymetric grids and derived contours are from data collected by the USGS with a multibeam (Simrad EM1000) sidescan sonar system in the southern Monterey Bay between Moss Landing and Monterey, California in 1995 (P1-95-MB, http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank). The data are provided as ArcInfo grids with 5-m resolution (MONT95NG, MONT95SG) and contours at 10-m intervals, and as shaded relief images (MNT95NSD.TIF, MNT95SSD.TIF) in the data/shaderel directory of this publication.
This is one of a collection of digital files of a geographic information system of spatially referenced data related to the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program "Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Project" http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/mbms>. The data were collected and analyzed between 1994 and 2000.
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 about the shallower areas of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
