The Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is located off Boston, Massachusetts, extending from Race Point Channel (just north of Cape Cod) to the southern part of Jeffreys Ledge. In cooperation with NOAA, surveys of the seafloor were conducted on four cruises over a two-year period from the fall of 1994 to the fall of 1996 using a Simrad EM-1000 multibeam echo sounder.

Cooperators: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), University of New Brunswick (UNB), Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS)
