High-Resolution Seismic-Reflection Profiles in SEG-Y and JPEG Formats From the Cruise RAFA07034 in the Vicinity of Woods Hole, Offshore Massachusetts

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (MA CZM), is producing detailed geologic maps of the coastal sea floor. Imagery, originally collected by NOAA for charting purposes, provides a fundamental framework for research and management activities along this part of the Massachusetts coastline, shows the composition and terrain of the seabed, and provides information on sediment transport and benthic habitat. Interpretive data layers were derived from multibeam echo-sounder and sidescan-sonar data collected in the vicinity of Woods Hole, a passage through the Elizabeth Islands, off Cape Cod, Massachusetts. In November 2007, bottom photographs, high-resolution seismic-reflection data, and Surficial sediment data were acquired as part of a ground-truth reconnaissance survey.
