Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This portion of the data release presents bathymetry data from the San Miguel Passage, in the Channel Islands, California. Bathymetry data were collected in the San Miguel Passage, Channel Islands, California in August 2007 by the U.S. Geological Survey, Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center (USGS, PCMSC). Collection was accomplished using a 234.5 kHz SEA (AP) Ltd. SWATHplus-M phase-differencing sidescan sonar mounted on the NOAA, Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary R/V Shearwater as part of the USGS research cruise S-2-07-SC. Data were collected in water depths up to 89 meters. The San Miguel Passage is within the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and is the body of water between the two western-most islands of the chain - Santa Rosa and San Miguel Islands. The data were processed at the USGS, PCMSC to create a 2-meter resolution TIFF raster, presented here.
