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. [Summary provided by the USGS.]
