Summary
Abstract: This bathymetric shapefile contains 10 m contours for the continental shelf and 100 m beyond the 200 m shelf edge. The contours have been derived from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), Coastal Relief Models volume 1 and 2. Note: These 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 June 26, 2006.

Purpose: This data overlay is intended to provide a highly detailed bathymetric contour interval for the NY Bight and Gulf of Maine area. The bathymetric shapefile contains 10 m contours for the continental shelf and 100 m intervals beyond the 200m shelf edge. These contours will be used by the Sand and Gravel assessment project to aid in the interpretation and creation of a geologic map of the sedimentary ... View entire text

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: No additional checks for topological consistency were performed on this data.

COMPLETENESS REPORT: The data is is complete in as much as the Coastal Relief Model dataset covers the US coastal zone.

HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT: Because details of the creation of the NGDC Coastal Relief model are unknown, the accuracy of the derived bathymetric contours are unknown.
Access Constraints ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: None
