Geologic Mapping of the Massachusetts Sea Floor

shimOverview

Geologic Mapping of the Massachusetts Sea Floor
The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) is conducting geologic mapping of the sea floor to characterize the surface and shallow subsurface geologic framework within the Massachusetts coastal zone. The long-term goal of this mapping effort is to produce high-resolution geologic maps and a Geographic Information System (GIS) that will serve the needs of research, management and the public. This project page provides a description of the mapping program and links to data  and publications  produced for this project and other Massachusetts  mapping efforts.
