Roughly 80% of the multibeam survey area covered by NOAA NOS in Cape Cod Bay this summer (the green outline) was already mapped with multibeam by the USGS last year (grey shaded box). This was despite the best efforts of Mass Coastal Zone Management, USGS, GOMMI, and Division of Marine Fisheries to provide data and eliminate overlap. Thanks to Seth Ackerman for the image.
