Dataset description: q5_1m_contours

Portion of the 1-meter (m) contours in quadrangle 5 of the Stellwagen Bank Survey Area offshore of Boston, Massachusetts based on bathymetry data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey from 1994-1996. The purpose of this dataset is to release the 1-meter (m) contours that are used in quadrangle 5 Stellwagen Bank geologic interpretation maps that aid in interpretation.
