These geophysical surveys will provide the data necessary for scientists to define, interpret, and provide baseline bathymetry and seafloor habitat for this area and to aid scientists in predicting future geomorphological changes of the islands with respect to climate change, storm impact, and sea level rise. Furthermore, these data will provide information for barrier island restoration, particularly in Camille Cut, and protection for the historical Fort Massachusetts on Ship Island, Mississippi. The dataset herein is a complete side scan sonar backscatter image for the study area offshore of the above-mentioned area. For more information refer to; http://ngom.usgs.gov/gomsc/mscip/index.html.
