High-resolution seismic-reflection surveys in the nearshore of outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2003_235

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Woods Hole Field Center (WHFC), in
cooperation with the USGS Water Resources Division conducted high-resolution
seismic-reflection surveys along the nearshore areas of outer Cape Cod,
Massachusetts from Chatham to Provincetown, Massachusetts.

The objectives of this investigation were to determine the stratigraphy of the
nearshore in relation to the Quaternary stratigraphy of outer Cape Cod by
correlating units between the nearshore and onshore and to define the geologic
framework of the region.
