We would like to thank UNO and the LDNR for their partnership on this project.
This project is a collection of high-resolution single-beam modern bathymetry data along the rapidly retreating Caminada-Moreau headland in the southern coastal zone, Louisiana, from Belle Pass eastward to Caminada Pass. These bathymetric data provide a 2005 dataset which succeeds a portion of the Louisiana Barrier Island Erosion Study: Atlas of Sea-Floor Changes from 1878 to 1989 by List and others (1994). The survey lines from Belle Pass to Caminada Pass (page 15 of the 1994 atlas) were digitized and resurveyed in 2005 in efforts to report sediment distribution (loss/gain) and shoreline transgression/regression along the Caminada-Moreau headland since the 1989 surveys.
