Data Announcement 00-MGG-02

The National Geophysical Data Center announces a full color poster measuring 28 by 64 inches depicting bathymetric contours of the Northern Gulf of Mexico and the Northern Bahamas. This new bathymetry was compiled with multibeam, survey and trackline data from numerous government, academic and industry sources as part of the International Bathymetric Chart of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico (IBCCA) regional ocean mapping project (http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/ibcca/ibcca.html). The IBCCA project is coordinated with five other international regional ocean mapping projects sponsored by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Color diffracting glasses are included with the poster for viewing in 3-D.
