Doc's Rocks North

The College of Charleston Seafloor Mapping class (Beam Team 2009) collected multibeam
sonar data in Nov. 2008 from aboard the NOAA Ship Nancy Foster. The area surveyed is the
northeastern extension of Doc's Rocks, mapped in 2006.
The area consist of rocky ledges and low-relief ridges in water depths of 45 to 60 meters.
