Description The U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (USGS SPCMSC), collected single beam and swath bathymetry data from the northern Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana, in June of 2016. This USGS data release includes the resulting processed elevation point data (xyz) and an interpolated digital elevation model (DEM). This USGS data release provides 229-line kilometers (km) of processed single beam bathymetry (SBB) data collected under Field Activity Number (FAN) 2016-335-FA. This FAN encompasses two subfans each of which represents one survey vessel; the RV Sallenger (subfan 16BIM01) and the RV Jabba Jaw (subFAN 16BIM02). SBB and IFB point data (x,y,z) are provided in two datums; the International Terrestrial Reference Frame of 2008 (ITRF08) and ellipsoid height and the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) in the CORS96 realization for the horizontal and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88) GEOID09, orthometric height for the vertical. Additional files provided in this data release include: trackline shapefiles, digital and handwritten field logs, and a comprehensive 50-meter Digital Elevation Model (DEM). [More]
