The purpose of this dataset is to provide a high-resolution digital elevation model (DEM) of the seabed in the study area referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). In conjunction with other geophysical and sample data, this bathymetry dataset will be used to investigate the morphology and geologic framework of the sea floor and coastal environment.
