Abstract : The Atlantic Inner Continental Shelf off central Florida was surveyed by the Coastal Engineering Research Center to obtain information on morphology, structure, and sediments of the seafloor bottom and shallow subbottom for use in interpretation of Quaternary history and delineation of sand deposits suitable for restoration of nearby beaches. Basic survey data consists of 360 statute miles of high resolution seismic reflection profiling and 90 sediment cores (10 to 20 feet long) collected in water depths of 25 to 90 feet below sea level.
