Description The data in this part of the release are bathymetry data collected in the nearshore using single-beam echosounders mounted on surf capable self-righting electric autonomous survey vehicles at the USGS DUring Nearshore Event eXperiment (DUNEX) site on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge (PINWR) and at the Basnight Bridge (BB), NC. In November 2020, April, September, and October 2021, USGS and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) scientists conducted multiple field surveys to collect the bathymetry as part of a topobathy time series. DUNEX is a multi-agency, academic, and non-governmental organization collaborative community experiment designed to study nearshore coastal processes during storm events. USGS participation in DUNEX will contribute new measurements and models that will increase our understanding of storm impacts to coastal environments, including hazards to humans and infrastructure and changes in landscape and natural habitats. Collected data are part of field activity 2021-029-FA and donated data 2020-024-DD and are related to field activity 2021-028-FA and 2021-032-FA. [More]
