Summary

This part of DS 781 presents data for the acoustic-backscatter map of Offshore of Aptos map area, California. Backscatter data are provided as two separate grids depending on mapping system and processing method. The raster data files are included in "BackscatterB_EM300_OffshoreAptos.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7K35RQB.The acoustic-backscatter map of Offshore of Aptos, California was generated from backscatter data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and by Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). Mapping was completed between 1998 and 2009, using a combination of a 234-kHz SWATHplus bathymetric sidescan-sonar system and a 30-kHz Simrad EM-300 multibeam echosounder. Within the final [...]
