Description As part of the 2022 Disaster Supplemental project, scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) conducted a nearshore geophysical survey to map the shoreface and inner shelf, as well as characterize stratigraphy near the Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana (LA) in June and August 2023. The purpose of this study was to conduct a morphologic and geologic assessment of the impacts of the 2020 and 2021 hurricane seasons within part of the Breton National Wildlife Refuge (specifically around Hewes Point and Monkey Bayou). These geophysical data will be used to quantify sediment redistribution resulting from storms. The data release associated with this metadata record serves as an archive of high-resolution chirp sub-bottom trace data and navigation files. The archived trace data are in standard Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) SEG-Y revision 1 format (Norris and Faichney, 2002). Processed sub-bottom profile images, survey trackline map, geographic information system (GIS) data, and formal Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) are also provided.
