USGS Cape Cod Bay Update 2

From Walter Barnhardt, USGS:

I attach a map showing the coverage of USGS-CZM mapping surveys in 2006/2007. Weather was superb in August for our geophysics cruise and we covered a lot of ground. No lost days due to weather.

Please note that in the southeast corner, near Long Point, our completed survey overlaps with the proposed NOAA survey. We shot 100% coverage with bathymetry (phase difference sonar) in the narrow lane that approaches to Provincetown. We need to do a better job avoiding duplicative work in this area.
