Title: USGS Bathymetry Data from the Western Region Coastal and Marine Geology Program
Description:
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/"
