These PNG images represent approximately 272 km of chirp seismic-reflection data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey during cruise 2018-043-FA along Traverse Bay, Lake Superior. This information allows for spatial correlation of chirp seismic-reflection profiles images with other geophysical and sample data for investigating lake-floor morphology and stratigraphy in the area. Images of each seismic profile were generated in order to provide portable and easily viewable alternatives to the SEGY versions of the data. Each profile image can be hotlinked to its corresponding trackline navigation contained within the Esri polyline shapefile '2018-043-FA_Edgetech424_Tracklines.shp'. Shot-point index marks along the top of the PNG images correlate to the positions of 500 shot intervals within the Esri point shapefile '2018-043-FA_Edgetech424_500sht.shp'.
