Archive of Chirp Subbottom Profile, Imagery, and Geospatial Data Collected in 2022 from Seven Mile Island, New Jersey

Online link
Description From April 29 through May 2, 2022, researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted a nearshore geophysical survey to map the shoreface and inner shelf, as well as characterizing stratigraphy near Seven Mile Island, New Jersey (NJ). The Coastal Sediment Availability and Flux project objectives include understanding the morphologic evolution of the barrier island system on a variety of time scales (months to centuries) and resolving storm-related impacts, post-storm beach response, and recovery. The goal of this study included the investigation of nearshore geologic controls on surface morphology and assessing barrier island resilience after Hurricane Sandy (U.S. landfall was October 29, 2012). 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, [More]
