Oceanography Updates: New Bathymetry and Seabed Maps for the Mid-Atlantic

Explore the Mid-Atlantic’s sea bottom in greater detail than ever before with four new maps in the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal’s Oceanography theme. The portal has added two high-definition bathymetry maps covering the full East Coast and a pair of maps illustrating natural sediment drift in offshore areas from southern New England to North Carolina. The bathymetry layers were created by NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information and the sediment layers were created with data from the USGS Sea Floor Stress and Sediment Mobility Database.
