In early 2020, scientists gathered to advance sediment budget modeling efforts by conducting a “Needs Assessment Workshop” for the Gulf Island National Seashore (GINS) to understand the coastal processes affecting island resiliency. The “Gulf Islands Sediment Budget Needs Assessment Workshop” was held, virtually, April 23–24 and May 27–28, 2020. The workshop series was organized by researchers from North Carolina State University in collaboration with National Park Service (NPS) and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) staff and was facilitated by personnel from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The final survey/questionnaire results are available as American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) delimited text files in comma-separated values (CSV) and Microsoft Excel (XLSX) file formats. This data release (Forde and Flocks, 2022) includes quantitative (GNIS_Survey_Data_April_Raw.csv, GNIS_Survey_Data_May_Raw.csv) and qualitative (GNIS_Survey_Data_Text_April_Raw.csv, GNIS_Survey_Data_Text_May_Raw.csv) survey results from two questionnaires submitted to attendees during the 2020 GINS sediment budget workshop. For additional information pertaining to workshop details and results, refer to the associated USGS Open-File Report (Seekamp and others, 2022).
The 2020 workshop series intended to identify sediment management research and data needs that could enhance natural and cultural resource stewardship at the GINS. Workshop objectives included eliciting research and data needs, with a primary goal of assessing the importance and urgency of the identified needs. This assessment was partly determined by requesting that the workshop participants identify and prioritize research themes through polls, comments, and discussion.
The workshop series (two paired, sequential, partial-day workshops) addressed two target audiences: (1) NPS and USGS staff (April workshop) and (2) regional Federal, State, county, and non-governmental organization staff, including NPS and USGS staff (May workshop). A total of four workshop sessions were held, comprised of two sessions with each target audience.
