Summary
Abstract: This data set contains the arcs delineate plate boundaries. These data are
intended for use in making figures and illustrations. Topography and bathymetry
data (EROS, 1996; Smith and Sandwell, 1997) were plotted on screen. Apparent
plate boundaries were then digitized and an ArcInfo line coverage created.
