This sonar mosaic was generated from Klein 3000 sidescan-sonar data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey during USGS field activity 2005-004-FA within Moultonborough Bay, Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. These data are used to define the lake floor sediment distribution within Moultonborough Bay. The sonar data will be correlated to sediment samples, bottom video and photographs collected in the bay in order to interpret the acoustic facies.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
