This text file represents approximately 26 kilometers of navigation and elevation data collected in 2016. These data were collected by the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center during USGS field activity 2016-030-FA using a Spectra Precision SP80 GNSS receiver (http://www.spectraprecision.com/eng/sp80.html#.WyQWYDNKjUI) that is rigidly mounted on the jetyak. These data can be used in conjunction with other geophysical and sample data to identify sea-floor morphology and sediment texture.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
