Swath Bathymetric Grid

Detailed Description

This bathymetric grid represents approximately 3900 kilometers of bathymetric data collected in 2014. These data were collected using a dual-head R2Sonic 2024 multibeam echosounder (MBES) by Alpine Ocean Seismic Survey, Inc., during USGS field activity 2014-072-FA. These bathymetric data were used to determine the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the inner continental shelf morphology and sediment distribution.
