Nantucket Sound - Processing Seafloor Mapping Data

Detailed Description

The Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center Sea Floor Mapping Group is mapping the seafloor and subseafloor of Nantucket Sound as part of a long-term collaboration with the State of Massachusetts. While a crew is at sea collecting new data, geographer Brian Andrews is processing yesterday's seafloor mapping data. By examining the data right after collection, we can make necessary adjustments and optimize the survey.
