The purpose of these data is to establish high-resolution acoustic depth measurements of the seafloor for regional geologic framework investigations. These data cover 257 square kilometers of the offshore survey area between Cape Ann and Salisbury Beach, Massachusetts, in depths between 7 m and 91m. The data were collected by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), in 2004 for the USGS, under contract to the University of New Hampshire.

These data are available as a ArcInfo 32-bit floating point binary grid in Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) format. The grid consists of two folders, one with the "grid name", and one "info" folder. The two folders for each grid are compressed into one file using WinZip (ver. 9.0) software. To utilize these data, the user must have software capable of uncompressing the WinZip file and importing and viewing an ESRI ArcRaster grid. The two folders for each grid must be uncompressed to the same folder. If during the process of extracting multiple grids in WinZip format to the same folder, the user is prompted by WinZip software to "overwrite existing files" in the info folder select the "yes" option.
