Single-beam bathymetry data collected in 2009 in the vicinity of Wainwright, Alaska

Online link
Description Bathymetry data were collected in the Wainwright Inlet, the mouth of the Kuk River, and in the nearshore region off Wainwright, Alaska, in August of 2009. Bathymetry was measured with a single-beam echo-sounder (10 Hz 144 ODOM Echotrac CV-100) mounted on the stern of a small vessel and synchronized to a 145 Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) Global Positioning Systems (GPS). The depth is measured relative to approximate Mean Sea Level (see attribute accuracy report in this file for further details on the MSL), and depth values are meters below the water surface. The GPS sampling rate was 1 Hz with vehicle speeds maintained at less than 15 km/hour, resulting in a sample point resolution of 3-5 meters. Data are available in a single csv file. [More]
