Interpretation of the thickness of Pleistocene deposits on the inner-continental shelf within the New York Bight, derived from seismic data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey, 1995 - 1999 (Grid, UTM Zone 18N, WGS84 and Esri polyline shapefile, Geographic, WGS84)

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

These data orginate from interpretations of seismic reflection profile data. The derivative data are in a grid format and are intended to represent the thickness and distribution of Pleistocene deposits throughout the inner-continental shelf within the New York Bight. The gridded Pleistocene thickness is helpful in understanding the stratigraphic evolution of the inner-continental shelf, the regional sediment transport system, and the influence of the inner-shelf framework on coastal processes. The grid showing thickness of Pleistocene sediment is an important factor in the framework of the coastal region.
