Western Coastal and Marine Geology Team's Sea-Floor-Mapping Systems Described on New Web Pages


in this issue:
 previous story | next story

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Western Coastal and Marine Geology (WCMG) team has posted a set of Web pages that describe the coastal- and sea-floor-mapping systems used by the team. These Web pages were created by WCMG Webmistress Laura Zink Torresan, from a PowerPoint presentation designed and created by WCMG scientist Peter Dartnell.

The new Web pages provide a quick overview about how we map the deep ocean floor, coastal areas, and beaches and how we combine this information with video footage, photographs, and sediment-sample data to make interpretations and create databases that many scientists can use.

We invite you to visit these pages at URL http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/mapping/.
