Upcoming Seminar

California Seafloor Mapping Program - History, Progress, and Future?

Sam Johnson, Guy Cochrane, Pete Dartnell, and Nadine Golden, USGS PCMSC

Wed., September 24th at 2:00PM

Seminar flierSUMMARY:

The California Seafloor Mapping Program (CSMP) began in 2008 as an ambitious collaborative effort to develop comprehensive bathymetric, habitat, and geologic maps and data for all of California’s State Waters. Progress to date has resulted in one of the world's most large-scale, comprehensive, seafloor-mapping datasets, providing essential information for coastal management while enabling coastal research and modeling. This seminar will provide updates on CSMP's major components, including:

  1. acquisition of high-resolution bathymetry and backscatter,
  2. acquisition of video groundtruthing,
  3. acquisition of high-resolution seismic-reflection data, and
  4. development of map and data products.

We hope to solicit broad feedback on the USGS-led product-development effort, and engage the audience in a lively discussion of how this work should continue in the future. CSMP information is available at:
