Acquire swath bathymetry and sidescan sonar over portions of Middle Ground
and Lucas shoals that were not covered during field activity 2010-004-FA.
Acquire additional multichannel seismic-refection data within Vineyard
Sound. These data will contribute to a more complete geologic framework
for the Mass CZM mapping program.
