Three large-format mapsheets (1:30,000) illustrate the bathymetry, sidescan-sonar backscatter data, and surficial geology of the Apalachicola Bay and St. George Sound survey areas. These mapsheets are distributed as Adobe portable document format (PDF) files that can be printed on a large format plotter at 45 x 32 inches.

Mapsheet 1. Bathymetry, presents a regional bathymetric model for the area using a 25-m grid cell resolution. Mapsheet 1. Bathymetry, presents a regional bathymetric model for the area using a 25-m grid cell resolution. (PDF format)

Mapsheet 2. Sidescan-sonar backscatter, shows distribution of backscatter values over the survey area. Mapsheet 2. Sidescan-sonar backscatter, shows distribution of backscatter values over the survey area. (PDF format)
