Summary
Abstract: This project will generate reconnaissance maps of the sea
floor offshore of the New York - New Jersey metropolitan
area -- the most heavily populated, and one of the most
impacted coastal regions of the United States. The surveys
will provide an overall synthesis of the sea floor
environment, including seabed texture and bed forms,
Quaternary strata geometry, and anthropogenic impact
(e.g., ocean dumping, trawling, channel dredging). The
goal of this project is to survey the offshore area, the
harbor, and the southern shore of Long Island, providing a
regional synthesis to support a wide range of management
decisions and a basis for further process-oriented
investigations. The project is conducted cooperatively with
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE).

This CD-ROM contains digital high resolution seismic
reflection data collected during the USGS ALPH 98013
cruise. The seismic-reflection data are stored as SEG-Y
standard format that can be read and manipulated by most
seismic-processing software. Much of the information
specific to the data are contained in the headers of the
SEG-Y format files. The file system format is ISO 9660
which can be read with DOS, Unix, and MAC operating
systems with the appropriate CD-ROM driver software
installed.
