U.S. Geological Survey
These geophysical surveys will provide the data necessary for scientists to define, interpret, and provide acoustic backscatter data for interpretation of sea floor substrate and habitat. Additionally they will aid scientists in proposing theories on 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, anthropogenic effects, and sediment distribution. 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.
