Surficial Sediment Data Collected During RV Rafael Cruise 2010-010-FA and OSV Bold Cruise 2010-015-FA North of Duck Pond Point, New York in Eastern Long Island Sound (H11999_SEDDATA.SHP)

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 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 Long Island Sound, shows the composition and terrain of the seabed, and provides information on sediment transport and benthic habitat. Interpretive data layers were derived from the multibeam echo-sounder data collected north of Duck Pond Point, New York. During April and May 2010, bottom photographs and surficial sediment data were acquired during 2 cruises as part of USGS ground-truth reconnaissance surveys of this area. For more information on the ground-truth surveys see <http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2010/10010/>; and <http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2010/10015/>;.
