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 208-line kilometers (km) of processed interferometric bathymetry (IFB) data collected under Field Activity Number (FAN) 2016-335-FA. This FAN encompasses two subfans each of which represents one survey vessel; the research vessel (RV) Sallenger (subFAN 16BIM01) collected IFB data and the RV Jabba Jaw (subFAN 16BIM02) acquired single beam bathymetry (SBB) data. SBB and IFB point data (xyz) 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 DEM. For further information regarding IFB data collection and/or processing methods from 2011 and 2012, refer to USGS Data Series 847 and 848(https://doi.org/10.3133/ds847 and https://doi.org/10.3133/ds848).
