Description In July and September of 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted geophysical surveys to investigate the geologic controls on island framework from Ship Island to Horn Island, MS, as part of a broader USGS study on Coastal Change and Transport (CCT). This report serves as an archive of unprocessed digital Chirp sub-bottom profile data, trackline maps, navigation files, GIS information, FACS logs, observer's logbook, and formal FGDC metadata. Gained digital images of the sub-bottom profiles are also provided. For more information on the seismic surveys see http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/c/c208mi/html/c-2-08-mi.meta.html and http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s308mi/html/s-3-08-mi.meta.html These data are also available via GeoMapApp (http://www.geomapapp.org/) and Virtual Ocean ( http://www.virtualocean.org/) earth science exploration and visualization applications.
