Description: Based on a research project conducted by the USGS in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary from 1994 to 2000 to determine the marine geologial environment of the broad, flat continental shelf between San Francisco to the north and Point Sur to the south. The project tasks focused on seafloor mapping, sediment sample collection and analysis, and oceanographic processes. Data sets include base map layers (bathymetry, topography, and coastal line), navigation tracks, sidescan sonar backscatter images, a geologic map of the sea floor, and sample locations and analyses.
