The purpose of this dataset is to release the mid-resolution and full-resolution JPEG images of photographs of the sea floor acquired off the entrance to the Connecticut River in eastern Long Island Sound, with a SEABOSS system during USGS surveys 2009-059-FA and 2010-010-FA conducted aboard the RV Rafael during November 2009 and April 2010. These photographs can be used to provide information on surface geology, sedimentary processes, and habitats.
