Nantucket Sound Seafloor Mapping

Detailed Description

The Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center Sea Floor Mapping Group mapping the seafloor and subseafloor of Nantucket Sound as part of a long-term collaboration with the State of Massachusetts. Eric Moore and Alex Nichols deploy the chirp subbottom profiler. The chirp is the device that allows us to see underneath the seafloor. Those data help us resolve sand resources, ancient lakes, and glacial tunnels.
