The NOAA Ship RUDE collected the sidescan data, J.M. Crocker (NOAA), R.P. Signell, J.F. Denny, and K.Y. McMullen processed the data.
This GIS overlay is a component of NOAA Survey H11310, Narragansett Bay, ArcView GIS database and contains the completed sidescan sonar mosaic for the study area. This image has been inverted and enhanced for better viewing. Light tones represent relatively harder returns, higher backscatter, and generally coarser sediments. Dark tones represent relatively softer returns, lower backscatter, and generally finer grained sediments.
