Seafloor Mapping Group
This project will generate reconnaissance maps of the sea floor offshore of the New York - New Jersey metropolitan area -- the most heavily populated, and one of the most impacted coastal regions of the United States. The surveys will provide an overall synthesis of the sea floor environment, including seabed texture and bed forms, Quaternary strata geometry, and anthropogenic impact (e.g., ocean dumping, trawling, channel dredging). The goal of this project is to survey the offshore area, the harbor, and the southern shore of Long Island, providing a regional synthesis to support a wide range of management decisions and a basis for further process-oriented investigations. The project is conducted cooperatively with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE).
