Abstract:
In 1995, the USGS Woods Hole Field Center, in Cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, began a program designed to map the seafloor 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 ultimate goal of this program is to provide an overall synthesis of the sea floor environment, including surficial sediment texture, subsurface geometry, and anthropogenic impact (e.g. ocean dumping, trawling, channel dredging). Sidescan sonar and high-resoluion seismic reflection profiling have been used to map the region north of about 42o10' and west of about 73o15'. The Hudson Shelf Valley, a shallow topographic feature that cuts across the shelf from offshore of New York to the shelf edge, was mapped using multibeam. This regional synthesis will support a wide range of management decisions and will provide a basis for further process-oriented investigations. This CD-ROM contains digital high resolution seismic reflection data collected during the USGS MGNM 99023 cruise. The coverage is the nearshore of Southern Long Island and the Hudson Shelf Valley. 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.
