Map the area where the Mass Maritime Academy training ship Kennedy
Information to be Derived
Bathymetric maps;
Swath bathymetric data was collected along the dock at the Mass
Maritime Academy in the area where the Training Ship Kennedy is usually
docked.  This was an outreach effort to help MMA determine if there is any
sediment deposition in that area when the Kennedy is not tied up as the
ship is in dry dock now for maintenance.
