This data set includes the tracklines (the linear extent) of bottom video acquired with the large SEABed Observation and Sampling System (SEABOSS) during USGS survey 05005, conducted September 18-20, 2005 aboard the R/V Connecticut. This data set was collected to ground-truth (verify) the geophysical data sets that were acquired immediately preceding this sampling survey (September 8-16, 2005). High resolution digital photographs were also taken along these tracklines (see shapefile BottomPhotos.shp)
