Title:
Coastal Bathymetry Data Collected in 2016 from the Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana–Single Beam Bathymetry Soundings (XYZ)
Abstract:
The U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (USGS SPCMSC), collected single beam and swath bathymetry data from the northern Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana, in June of 2016. This USGS data release includes the resulting processed elevation point data (xyz) and an interpolated digital elevation model (DEM). This USGS data release provides 229-line kilometers (km) of processed single beam bathymetry (SBB) data collected under Field Activity Number (FAN) 2016-335-FA. This FAN encompasses two subfans each of which represents one survey vessel; the RV Sallenger (subfan 16BIM01) and the RV Jabba Jaw (subFAN 16BIM02). SBB and IFB point data (x,y,z) are provided in two datums; the International Terrestrial Reference Frame of 2008 (ITRF08) and ellipsoid height and the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) in the CORS96 realization for the horizontal and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88) GEOID09, orthometric height for the vertical. Additional files provided in this data release include: trackline shapefiles, digital and handwritten field logs, and a comprehensive 50-meter Digital Elevation Model (DEM).
Supplemental_Information:
The single beam surveys were acquired and processed to a geodetic reference ellipsoid. The single beam data were collected using stand-alone GPS and then post-processed to obtain Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) navigation. All single beam surveys were referenced to the World Geodetic System of 1984 (WGS84 [G1150]), which is equivalent to the International Terrestrial Reference Frame of 2000 (ITRF00). The final SBB x,y,z position data from this survey were transformed from the acquisition datum, ITRF00, to the International Terrestrial Reference Frame of 2008 (ITRF08) so they could be merged with the concurrently-collected IFB data. The final, combined bathymetry dataset consisted of a single x,y,z point file that was subsequently used to create the interpolated DEM, Chandeleur_Islands_2016_SBB_and_IFB_NAD83_NAVD88_GEOID09_50_DEM.tif.

    GPS Acquisition: A USGS-installed benchmark, CTMP, was occupied on the northern Chandeleur Islands. The base was equipped with an Ashtech ProFlex GPS receiver, which recorded the 12-channel full-carrier-phase positioning signals (L1/L2) from satellites via the Thales choke-ring antenna at a rate of 2 times per second. GPS instrumentation on the rover vessel recorded concurrently at 2 times per second. The GPS navigation data were acquired and processed in the current realization of WGS84 (G1150).

    Single Beam Bathymetry Acquisition: Depth soundings were acquired aboard the vessel at 100-milliseconds (ms) using an Odom CV100 echo sounder system with a 200 kilohertz (kHz) transducer. Boat motion was recorded on the R/V Jabba Jaw (16BIM02) using a TSS motion sensor. All sensor data were combined and saved into a single raw data file (.raw) in HYPACK version 2014, with each device string referenced by a device identification code and time stamped to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Sound velocity measurements were collected using a Sontek Castaway CTD unit to record changes in water column speed of sound (SOS). Person who carried out this activity:

    Date: 2016 (process 3 of 7)
    Differentially corrected navigation processing: The coordinate values of the GPS base station, CTMP, are the time-weighted average of values obtained from OPUS. These coordinates were entered into the post-processing software, GrafNav version 8.6. The kinematic GPS data from the survey vessel was then processed to the static GPS data from the CTMP base station. Steps were taken to ensure that the trajectories between the base and rover were clean and resulted in fixed positions. GPS data quality was monitored and maintained by analyzing the graphs, trajectory maps, and processing logs that GrafNav produces for each GPS session. If poor GPS data points were identified during the quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) process, some common tools used to improve the solution were utilized. These options included, but were not limited to, omitting a satellite flagged as poor in health, excluding time-segments with cycle slips, or adjusting the satellite elevation mask angle. The final, differentially-corrected, precise DGPS positions were computed for the roving vessel’s recording rate, and then exported in ASCII text format. The exported ASCII file subsequently replaced the uncorrected real-time rover positions (recorded at the time of acquisition in ITRF00) during post-processing. The GPS data were processed and exported in WGS84 (G1150), which is equivalent to ITRF00, and ellipsoid height in meters. Person who carried out this activity:

    Single beam bathymetry processing: All data were processed using CARIS HIPS and SIPS (Hydrographic Information Processing System and Sonar Information Processing System) version 9.1. The raw HYPACK data files were imported into CARIS. The differentially corrected navigation files were imported using the generic data parser tool within CARIS, and any SVP profile casts were imported and applied. The bathymetric data components (position, motion, depth, and SOS) were then merged and geometrically corrected to produce processed x,y,z data. Next, the data were edited for outliers and then further reviewed in the Subset Editor utility for crossing status and questionable data points or areas. The geometrically corrected point data were then exported as an x,y,z ASCII text file referenced to WGS84 (G1150), which is equivalent to ITRF00, and ellipsoid height in meters. The exported ASCII files from the vessel were later combined with the IFB data file for further QA/QC. Person who carried out this activity:

    Single beam bathymetry error analysis: The ASCII files described in the previous step were imported into ArcMap version 10.3 and reviewed for outliers. An Esri ArcMap add-in program script was written locally, by USGS staff, to evaluate the elevation differences at the intersection of crossing lines. If discrepancies were found at a crossing, the source of the discrepancy was identified and, if needed, the line or segment of data points in error was statically adjusted or removed. This process was reiterated again to produce a final assessment of the crossing range for the SBB dataset. Person who carried out this activity:

How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?
    The accuracy of the data is determined during data collection. The SBB data were collected during one research effort in June 2016 (USGS FAN 2016-335-FA, subFAN 16BIM02), utilized one vessel and are therefore internally consistent. During mobilization, each piece of equipment was isolated to obtain internal and external offset measurements with respect to the survey platform. DGPS was always implemented for navigational accuracy in post-processing. These bathymetric data have not been independently verified for accuracy. For the SBB, offsets between the single beam transducers, the Ashtech antenna reference point (ARP), and the vessel motion units were measured and accounted for on the platform. All pertinent measurements were accounted for in the DGPS post-processing software packages (National Geodetic Survey On-Line Positioning User Service (OPUS), and Waypoint Product Group GrafNav, version 8.6).
  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?
    The USGS-installed benchmark, CTMP, was occupied on the northern Chandeleur Islands for the duration of the field activity, 6/12/16 – 6/16/16. The static GPS base station sessions used the On-Line Positioning User Service (OPUS) which is maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Geodetic Survey (NGS). The base location results from OPUS were entered into a spreadsheet to compute one final coordinate and error analysis for that base location. Using the OPUS values for each day, and the total time per GPS session, the average weighted value of occupation time was calculated so the longer occupations hold more value than shorter occupations. The final value for latitude, longitude, and ellipsoid height was the weighted average of each GPS session processed with OPUS. This value was entered into GrafNav version 8.6 as the base station coordinates. The range from the average values was calculated, using outputs from OPUS, for each session as the absolute value of the final value minus the daily value. The maximum horizontal range of the base station coordinates used for post-processing the single beam bathymetry was 0.00027 decimal seconds latitude and 0.00025 decimal seconds longitude.
  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?
    All static base station sessions for CTMP were processed through OPUS. The base location results from OPUS were entered into a spreadsheet to compute a final, time-weighted positional coordinate (latitude, longitude, and ellipsoid height). Base station position error for each GPS session was calculated as the absolute value of the final position minus the session position value. SPCMSC standards define the maximum acceptable vertical error for any individual base station GPS session as less than or equal to three times the standard deviation of the ellipsoid height; any occupations exceeding this error are removed, and the base station coordinates are then recalculated and considered final. For the CTMP base location, the standard deviation of the ellipsoid height was 0.004 m and the maximum difference from the average ellipsoid for any GPS session was 0.013 m.
  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?
    These are complete post-processed x,y,z bathymetric data points from acoustic single beam data collected in June 2016, near the northeastern region of the Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana.
  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?
    This file consists of the post-processed bathymetric data (x,y,z) (subFAN 16BIM02) and represents data coverage for the single beam portion of the 2016 nearshore survey (USGS FAN 2016-335-FA) from the Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana.
