Bathymetry and acoustic backscatter collected in Long Island Sound for the Phase I Long Island Sound Seafloor Mapping Project 2014 (NCEI Accession 0167946)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This dataset contains an integrated GeoTiff with 1x1 meter cell size representing the 2014 Long Island Sound Benthic Habitat Priority Area of Interest between Brigeport, CT and Port Jefferson, NY. This integrated bathymetric raster is a mosaic of surveys from NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson (S-222) and its two inshore launch vessels, NOAA Ship Rude (S-590), as well as surveys conducted by the Stony Brook University R/V Pritchard in coordination with the NOAA Biogeography Branch and the Office of Coastal Services between in the year 2012. Bathymetry data was collected using multibeam sonars and integrated into a seamless 32 bit raster using ArcGIS 10.1 raster calculator by the Biogeography Branch by a NOAA contractor.
