Valerie Paskevich for creating the ArcView shapefile and NOAA/NGDC for providing the source information.
This data overlay is intended to provide a highly detailed bathymetric contour interval for the NY Bight and Gulf of Maine area. The bathymetric shapefile contains 10 m contours for the continental shelf and 100 m intervals beyond the 200m shelf edge. These contours will be used by the Sand and Gravel assessment project to aid in the interpretation and creation of a geologic map of the sedimentary character of the seafloor for the area.
