The purpose of this bathymetric terrain model is to provide a high-quality bathymetric surface of the Puerto Rico Trench and Caribbean Region to identify and characterize historical submarine landslides capable of generating tsunamis and for future geological investigations.
NGDC Cruise Name= The name assigned by NGDC for the survey if they were NOAA-related surveys. USGS FAN= The USGS Field Activity Number assigned by USGS Woods Hole Science Center for the survey (if USGS personnel were involved) Archive= the address of the National Geophysical Data Center archive location where raw data were archived by NGDC after the survey. If data are not archived with NGDC this link is the USGS Field Activity Report that provides basic survey information. Survey Date= The calendar dates of the survey and data collection by on board USGS personnel. Output Surface= The name of the final CARIS surface (in .csar format) that was used in the combine function. Creation Date= the calendar date the latest surface was created for input to the combine function. If any edits were made to a surface, it is rebuilt, interpolated, and a new creation data is recorded.

|Data format:||This WinZip (v. 14) file contains the Esri 32-bit floating point ArcRaster Grid, accessory info folder, and associated metadata for the prbath150m bathymetric terrain model of the Puerto Rico Trench and northeastern Caribbean region. in format AIG (version ArcGIS 9.3.1) Esri Binary Grid Size: 25|
These data are available as an ArcInfo 32-bit floating point binary grid in Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) format. The grid consists of two folders, one with the "grid name", and one "info" folder. The two folders for each grid are compressed into one file using WinZip (ver. 14.0) software. To utilize these data, the user must have software capable of uncompressing the WinZip file and importing and viewing an Esri ArcRaster grid. The two folders for each grid must be uncompressed to the same folder.
