Summary

This part of DS 781 presents data for the acoustic-backscatter map of Offshore of Santa Cruz map area, California. Backscatter data are provided as three separate grids depending on mapping system. The raster data files are included in "Backscatter_Swath_OffshoreSantaCruz.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7TM785G.The acoustic-backscatter map of the Offshore of Santa Cruz, California was generated from backscatter data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Mapping was completed in 2009, using a 234-kHz SWATHplus bathymetric sidescan-sonar system. Within the final imagery, brighter tones indicate higher backscatter intensity, and darker tones indicate lower backscatter intensity. The intensity represents [...]
