Purpose
The purpose of this survey was to collect high-resolution chirp seismic 
profiles, swath bathymetry, and sidescan sonar backscatter to characterize the 
surface and subsurface geologic framework offshore of Massachusetts.

Summary
USGS Survey 10004 (2010-004-FA) was conducted 13 May-4 June, 2010 aboard the M/V 
Megan Miller in Buzzards Bay & Vineyard Sound, MA. The purpose of this survey 
was to collect high-resolution chirp seismic profiles, swath bathymetry, and 
sidescan sonar backscatter to characterize the surface and subsurface geologic 
framework offshore of Massachusetts. The survey covered a total of 333 sq km in 
northern Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound, MA.
