Ground Penetrating Radar and Global Positioning System Data Collected from Central Florida Gulf Coast Barrier Islands, Florida, February-March 2021

Online link
Description A morphologically diverse and dynamic group of barrier islands along the Central Florida (FL) Gulf Coast (CFGC) form a 75-kilometer-long chain stretching from Anclote Key in the north to Egmont Key in the south. In 2021, scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) conducted ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys on barrier islands located along the CFGC, in Pinellas County, FL. This study investigated the past evolution of the CFGC from field sites at Anclote Key, Caladesi and Honeymoon Islands, and Fort DeSoto to quantify changes that occurred along these barrier systems prior to the 20th century.
