Location of Sea-Floor Photographs Acquired During U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Cruise 07034 (RAFA07034) in the Vicinity of Woods Hole, Offshore Massachusetts (RAFA07034_BOTPHOTOS, Geographic)

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, surficial sediment data, and seismic-reflection profiles were acquired as part of a ground-truth reconnaissance survey.
