Summary
Abstract: The purpose of this project is to map the surficial geology of the sea
floor of Historic Area Remediation Site (HARS) and changes in
surficial characteristics over time. This GIS project presents
multibeam and other data in a digital format for analysis and display
by scientists, policy makers, managers and the general public.

The data set consists of:
Seafloor topography and backscatter intensity of HARS
Boundary of the Cellar Dirt Disposal Site
Locations of Dredged Material Placed in the HARS
Sediment Texture Samples Taken in the HARS in 1996 and 1998

Open-File Report 00-503 may be ordered on DVD from USGS Information
Services. The DVD contains the GIS data, which are not available
online, due to size
