Description The data in this section of the release characterizes the nearshore bathymetry collected in October 2021 by USGS and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) scientists using a self-righting electric uncrewed surface vehicle with a sidescan sonar attached. Data collection occured at the USGS DUring Nearshore Event eXperiment (DUNEX) site on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge (PINWR). 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 are related to donated data 2020-024-DD, field activity 2021-028-FA and 2021-032-FA. [More]
