Abstract: About 2,250 square kilometers of the Lake Erie bottom between Conneaut and Toledo, about 25 percent of Ohio's open lake part of Lake Erie, was surveyed to assess potential sand and gravel resources. Primary survey data consist of 690 kilometers of high-resolution seismic reflection profiles between Conneaut and Toledo; 58 vibracores with a maximum length of 6.1 meters were also taken between Conneaut and Marblehead, Ohio. Survey limits were generally from the -7.5-meter depth contour to about the -14-meter depth contour, a maximum of about 16 kilometers offshore.
