The multibeam observations in the HARS were originally published in Butman and others (2002), U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 00-503 (see cross-reference citation). These data have been reprocessed to correct for an error in the software that projected the data on a sphere rather than on the WGS84 ellipsoid, and to stretch the backscatter intensity and shaded relief images the same as the Hudson Shelf Valley images.
These data are included in this publication to provide bathymetry and backscatter intensity of the sea floor for maps showing the locations of images and samples obtained in the New York Bight.
