Southeast Florida Atlantic Shelf Features

Continental shelf environments along the Florida Atlantic southeast coast offshore Palm Beach County were mapped by interpreting seafloor topography derived from airborne laser bathymetry. The study area covered approximately 270 km2 along 75 km of coast, extending from the shore to about 55 m water depth beyond the shelf break to the upper Florida-Hatteras Slope. Forty-two mapping units were used to depict seafloor features that ranged from bedrock outcrops and coral reefs to different types of morphosedimentary bodies. The location diagram above shows the continental shelf study area offshore Palm Beach County in relation to terrestrial features and the upper Florida-Hatteras Slope.
