Description:
Abstract:
Derived contours at 10-m intervals 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 (USGS Field Activity P1-95-MB). 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 (see this and other older Monterey Bay USGS works archived at https://archive.usgs.gov/archive/sites/walrus.wr.usgs.gov/monterey/index.html.
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.
Supplemental_Information:
Additional information about the field activities from which these data were derived is available online at:

Although this Federal Geographic Data Committee-compliant metadata file is intended to document the data set in nonproprietary form, as well as in Esri format, this metadata file may include some Esri-specific terminology.
