Description:
Abstract:
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted a geophysical and sampling survey in October 2014 that focused on a series of shoreface-attached ridges offshore of western Fire Island, NY. Seismic-reflection data, surficial grab samples and bottom photographs and video were collected along the lower shoreface and inner continental shelf. The purpose of this survey was to assess the impact of Hurricane Sandy on this coastal region. These data were compared to seismic-reflection and surficial sediment data collected by the USGS in the same area in 2011 to evaluate any post-storm changes in seabed morphology and modern sediment thickness on the inner continental shelf. For more information about the WHCMSC Field Activity, see: https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2014-009-FA.
Purpose:
These data are supplied to provide the raw navigation collected during USGS field activity 2014-009-FA. HYPACK software (version 14.0.9.47) was used to log these navigation data.

Raw navigation data were saved in HYPACK format (http://www.hypack.com). File name convention is LLL_TTTT.DDD, where LLL is the HYPACK line number, TTTT is the 24 hour time for the beginning of the file, and DDD is the Julian day (JD). Times were recorded in UTC (Coordinate Universal Time). HYPACK version 14.0.9.47 was used for data logging.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Raw HYPACK navigation files were transferred from the navigation acquisition computer to a data server for accessibility and archival. The raw HYPACK navigation files are stored in separate directories indicating the acquisition Julian Day (JD292 through JD299), corresponding to October 19 - October 26, 2014; only one data file was collected on JD296 (October 21, 2014), as data collection was suspended due to poor weather conditions. The filenames in each folder are in the format of linenumber_starttime.julianday. For example, filename 001_1101.292 represents HYPACK line number 001, start time 1101 and Julian Day 292. Times are recorded in UTC (Coordinate Universal Time). Julian Day directories also contain a LOG file that lists the files recorded during that julian day.

Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Not all files contain the same HYPACK strings, but this list represents all the HYPACK strings represented in the files. These are the original files; no corrections have been made.

During UGSS cruise 2014-009-FA, the TELEDYNE RESON T20-P multibeam echosounder was tested; no data were collected for research and/or data analysis. Some fields within the HYPACK navigation files were setup for the T20-P and associated systems such as the ODIM Brooke Ocean Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP) 30. These fields contain usable data, however they were not used for any additional data analysis (Fields: DEV 3, DEV 2, TID, KTC, PRD).

The times recorded in the navigation file are in UTC. Keywords and the information they provide are as follows:

FTP: The first record located at the top of the header used to identify the file format.

VER: HYPACK version number.

INF: General survey information filled in by the data technician. This typically contains the survey participants, the vessel name, other agencies involved with the survey, and the location of the survey. The three numbers at the end refer to initial tide correction at start-of-line, initial draft correction at start-of-line and sound velocity from the navigation parameters. NOTE: within some files the survey area is listed as "Offshore Delmarva Pennisula" which is incorrect. The survey area was offshore of Fire Island, Long Island, New York.

ELL: Ellipsoid information. The name of the ellipsoid followed by the semi-major axis in meters and the flattening ration.

PRO: Project information record where TME indicates Transverse Mercator and the central meridian of -75 indicates UTM, zone 18.

DTM: Datum transformation record.

GEO: Geoid model. Blank if not present. Note: During survey 2014-009-FA geoid g2012a-CONUS.geo was used.

HVU: Horizontal and Vertical Units (meters).

TND: Survey time and date in UTC.

DEV 0: Indicates that lines collected with device designation 0 are lines of Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) collected with the Ashtech BRG2 receiver. (The Ashtech BR2G was used as the primary antenna during JD299, starting with file 000_1804.299)

DEV 1: Indicates that the lines with device designation 1 are lines of Real Time Kinematic Global Positioning System (RTK-GPS) data collected with the Ashtech ProFlex 800 GPS RTK receiver. (The Ashtech ProFlex 800 GPS RTK receiver was used as the primary navigation receiver from JD292 through JD299 file 000_1253.299)

DEV 2: Indicates that the lines with device designation 2 are lines of center beam depth transmitted from the Reson T20-P multibeam echosounder via serial interface. *** The Teledyne Reson T20-P was tested during USGS cruise 2014-009-FA. The center beam depth information was stored in the Hypack raw files to be used as depth input for the MVP-30. ***

DEV 3: Indicates that the lines with device designation 3 are lines of NMEA Output.

DEV 4: Indicates that the lines with device designation 4 are lines of instrument information "DGPS_at_stern". Note: this device was labeled "Disabled" throughout the survey.

DEV 5: Indicates that the lines with device designation 5 are lines of Applanix POS M/V attitude and position system. Note: this device was labeled "Disabled" throughout the survey.

OFF: Device Offsets in the format "OFF dn n1 n2 n3 n4 n5 n6 n7" where dn = device number; n1 = starboard or port offset (positive starboard); n2 = forward or aft offset (positive forward); n3 = height (antenna) or depth (transducer draft) offset; n4 = yaw rotation angle (positive for clockwise rotation); n5 = roll rotation angle (port side up is positive); n6 = pitch rotation angle (bow up is positive); n7 = device latency in seconds.

DDT:identifies the device synchronizing the computer's time, where KTC is Kinematic Tide Corrections

PRD: Private Device Data, which has multiple formats depending on the type of device generating the data. For example, KTD is a Kinematic Tide Datum File that can be used to apply offsets to RTK values to establish corrected heights.

LIN 3: planned line data follows where X indicates the number of waypoints.

PTS: planned line waypoints (easting and northing, UTM, zone 18N, meters).

LBP: planned line begin point (easting and northing, UTM zone 18N, meters).

LNN: planned line name.

EOL: end of planned line

USR: user information

EOH: end of header.

The remaining elements have similar information in the first 3 columns. The first column will indicate the data type, the second column will indicate the device that recorded the information (e.g. 0 for Ashtech BRG2 DGPS) and the third column is the time tag (seconds past midnight) that is also sometimes referred to as the latency. The remaining information on each line is specific to the data type. Not all data types were recorded in each HYPACK file.

POS: Position of the ship in the format "POS dn t x y" where dn=device number; t=time tag (seconds past midnight); x=easting; y=northing. On this cruise these values are in UTM, Zone 18, WGS84.
