GIS Layers Now Available for Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
December 5, 2016

On September 15, President Obama designated the first marine national monument in the Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, using his authority under the Antiquities Act of 1906. 

The monument includes two distinct areas, one that covers three canyons, and one that covers four seamounts. These are located about 130 miles east-southeast of Cape Cod, and cover a total area of more than 4,900 square miles, about the size of Connecticut, or slightly larger than Yellowstone National Park. 

Boundary files of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument are now available online.
