Sea-Floor Sunday #46: Chesapeake Bay
This week’s Sea-Floor Sunday highlights some bathymetry data I found from NOAA. Their Estuarine Bathymetry site is a great portal for finding data for estuaries for most of the United States coastline.
The images below are screenshots of their GoogleEarth visualization files (kmz files). Geologically, estuaries are essentially flooded river valleys, which is nicely expressed in these images of Chesapeake Bay.
