Purpose
Map the mid and outer continental shelf region at the head of
De Soto Canyon region, northeastern Gulf of Mexico to determine
the location and extent of deep-water reefs and ridges.
It is critical to determine the accurate location,
geomorphology, and types of the ridges and reefs to
understand the Quaternary history of the area and to assess
their importance as benthic habitats for fisheries.
Information to be Derived
Bathymetry and calibrated, co-registered acoustic backscatter
Summary
Mapped the head of De Soto Canyon region, northeastern Gulf of Mexico, 
collecting multibeam bathymetry and acoustic backscatter. The data will be used 
to determine the location and extent of deep-water reefs and ridges.
