Please credit Timothy S. Collett, USGS, as the originator of the dataset from which this GIS data layer is derived.
This ArcView shapefile shows the regional bathymetry within the US Exclusive Economic Zone of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. The bathymetry is presented as lines representing the 200, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000 m contours. These data were compiled by Collett (1995) to assess gas hydrate resources for the 1995 National assessment of United States oil and gas resources. The tabular data used to generate this shapefile were copied from Charpentier et al (1996).
