Summary
Abstract: This data set includes pseudo-colored backscatter intensity of the sea floor offshore of northeastern Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The data were collected with a multibeam sea floor mapping system during USGS survey 98015, conducted November 9 - 25, 1998. The surveys were conducted using a Simrad EM 1000 multibeam echosounder mounted aboard the Canadian Coast Guard vessel Frederick G. Creed. This ... View entire text

Purpose: To release a digital map (GeoTIFF image) derived from multibeam observations that shows sea floor pseudo-colored backscatter intensity (a measure of sea floor texture and roughness) at a spatial resolution of 4 m/pixel.
