      Abstract. Cape Cod Bay is a large embayment on the U.S. Atlantic Coast in Massachusetts (41°45′—42°05′ N, 70°—70°34′ W) enclosed on the south and east by Cape Cod, on the west by the Massachusetts coast, and opens to Massachusetts Bay and the Gulf of Maine on the north.   Oceanographic Remote Sensing Laboratory. The Oceanographic Remote Sensing Laboratory (ORSL), led by Dr. James J. Bisagni, is currently studying various coastal physical oceanographic processes and how they relate to productivity in the coastal ocean over various trophic levels from phytoplankton to fisheries.

Beaches on Cape Cod Bay tend to be smooth and broad, with gentle surf, and, at low tide, hundreds of yards of tidal flats to wander and explore.The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's continuous seismic profiler was used in Cape Cod Bay to make two hundred miles of reflection profiles and eight oblique reflection-refraction stations.

From these the areal extent and velocities of the principal seismic layers were determined. The deepest layer found (having a compressional wave velocity of 15, feet per second;
