Summary

In spring and summer 2017, the U.S. Geological Survey’s Gas Hydrates Project conducted two cruises aboard the research vessel Hugh R. Sharp to explore the geology, chemistry, ecology, physics, and oceanography of sea-floor methane seeps and water column gas plumes on the northern U.S. Atlantic margin between the Baltimore and Keller Canyons. Split-beam and multibeam echo sounders and a chirp subbottom profiler were deployed during the cruises to map water column backscatter, sea-floor bathymetry and backscatter, and subsurface stratigraphy associated with known and undiscovered sea-floor methane seeps. The first cruise, known as the Interagency Mission for Methane Research on Seafloor Seeps and designated as field activity 2017-001-FA, [...]

Purpose

These GeoTIFF grids represent the processed Reson 7160 multibeam echo sounder seafloor bathymetry data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey during USGS field activities 2017-001-FA and 2017-002-FA along the U.S. Atlantic continental shelf break and upper slope between Accomac and Keller Canyons. The data depict seafloor bathymetry associated with shelf-edge, submarine canyon, and upper slope environments in which seafloor methane seeps have been identified. The data are intended to be used in conjunction with other geophysical, ROV dive imagery, and geologic sample data to investigate sea-floor morphology and geologic framework associated with sites of methane seepage.
