Deepwater Horizon MC252 incident wellhead location and bathymetry data from the Environmental Resource Management Application (ERMA) collected between 2010-06-01 to 2010-07-31 in the Northern Gulf of Mexico (NCEI Accession 0163804)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This Archival Information Package (AIP) contains three Environmental Resource Management Application (ERMA) GIS layers that depict the Mississippi Canyon 252 wellhead location and supporting bathymetric contour data in the Gulf of Mexico. From shoreline, the contour interval is one per 0.5 meters of depth up to 10 meters. Contours are also present at 20, 30, and 40 meters of depth. Bathymetric intervals for the deep sea are: 10 meter intervals from 5-100 meter depth, 100 meter intervals from 100-1000 meter depth, and 500 meter intervals from 500-4000 meter depth. Coordinates of the wellhead were digitized from scanned PDF image detailing position of wellhead, riser pipe, and leaks. Source of image from BP was presumably collected from a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) reconnaissance. Original coordinates given to 100th of feet. These data were collected during the response to the Mississippi Canyon 252 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Northern Gulf of Mexico and used as part of the Programmatic Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan (PDARP).
