Field Activity 2009-002-FA

Identifier 2009-002-FA
Alternate names M-2-09-BZ
Purpose Geologic mapping of sea floor (geophysics only).
Location Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Summary We collected geophysical data over approx. 3350 linear kilometers of tracklines. Full coverage bathymetry and backscatter data encompass approx. 350 sq. km, including 29 sq. km in eastern Vineyard Sound.
Info derived Sea floor map; Bathymetric maps;
