Description From June 2 through 9, 2021, researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted an inshore and offshore geophysical survey to map the shoreface and determine Holocene stratigraphy near Pensacola Beach, Florida (FL). The Coastal Resource Evaluation for Management Applications (CREMA) project objective includes the investigation of nearshore geologic controls on surface morphology. This publication serves as an archive of high-resolution chirp subbottom trace data, survey trackline map, navigation files, geographic information system (GIS) data, and formal Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Processed subbottom profile images are also provided. The archived trace data are in standard Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) SEG-Y revision 0 format (Barry and others, 1975). In addition to this data release, the SEG-Y files can be downloaded from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geoscience Data System (CMGDS) at, https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov. Coastal multibeam bathymetry data were also collected for this project offshore of the Santa Rosa Island coast (during USGS Field Activity Number 2019-326-FA) and are provided in another data release (Farmer and others, 2020).
