Summary
Abstract: This data set shows the distribution of surficial sediments offshore of northern and eastern Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This interpretation is based on data collected with a multibeam sea floor mapping system during USGS survey 98015, conducted November 9 - 25, 1998 and on data collected with a bottom sampling and photographic system during USGS survey 04011, conducted during May and June, 2004. Note: The data were reprojected from their native projection into North American Datum 1983 (NAD83) / Massachusetts State Plane coordinate system, Mainland Zone (Fipszone 2001) meters by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management on Sept. 5, 2006.

Purpose: To release a digital map derived from multibeam observations, samples, and bottom photographs that shows the surficial sediment distribution off northern and northeastern Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
