Summary
Abstract: The USGS Western Region Coastal and Marine Geology division contains
extensive bathymetry data through InfoBank
("http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/gazette/html/bathymetry/gl.html")
Data includes bathymetry, magnetics, gravity, multibeam, subbottom
profiler data, and sample data.

Older bathymetric and elevation data is still available from the
walrus anonymous ftp server (available on the web only), at:
"http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/ftp/"
