Abstract:
These data were collected under a cooperative agreement with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Coastal and Marine Geology Program, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC). Initiated in 2003, the primary objective of this program is to develop regional geologic framework information for the management of coastal and marine resources. Accurate data and maps of sea-floor geology are important first steps toward protecting fish habitat, delineating marine resources, and assessing environmental changes due to natural or human impacts. The project is focused on the inshore waters of coastal Massachusetts, primarily in water depths of 3-30 meters deep. Data collected for the mapping cooperative have been released in a series of USGS Open-File Reports (http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/project-pages/coastal_mass/html/current_map.html). The data collected in the study area located in Northern Cape Cod Bay Massachusetts includes high-resolution geophysics (bathymetry, backscatter intensity, and seismic reflection), and ground validation (sediment samples, video tracklines, and bottom photographs). The data were collected during five separate surveys conducted between 2006 and 2008 and cover 480 square kilometers of the inner continental shelf. More information about the individual USGS surveys conducted as part of the northern Cape Cod Bay project can be found on the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center Field Activity webpage: 06012: http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2006/06012/ 07001: http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2007/07001/ 07002: http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2007/07002/ 07003: http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2007/07003/ 08002: http://quashnet.er.usgs.gov/data/2008/08002/
Purpose:
The purpose of this dataset is to record the trackline navigation along which bottom video was recorded and using the the large SEABed Observation and Sampling System (SEABOSS) during USGS survey 07003, conducted September 7-11, 2007 aboard the R/V Connecticut offshore Massachusetts in the Northern Cape Cod Bay survey area. This data set was collected to ground-truth (verify) the acoustic data sets that were acquired during USGS geophysical surveys 06012 (2006), 07001 (2007), 07002 (2007), and 08002 (2008). High-resolution digital photographs of the seafloor were also taken during the video drift (see shapefile CCB_BottomPhotos.shp).

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Trackline data from all SEABOSS transects in the Northern Cape Cod Bay survey area are included in this shapefile. Gaps in sequential SEABOSS station numbers may exist.
Completeness_Report:
A total of 184 sampling sites were occupied during survey 07003 covering both the Duxbury to Hull and Cape Cod Bay survey areas. Only the 109 sampling sites within Cape Cod Bay survey area are included in this spatial dataset. The SEABOSS video tracklines that are not included in this report are from sites north of Brant Rock, Massachusetts and have been published in a previous data release (Barnhardt and other 2010) focused on the Duxbury to Hull survey area. The length of the trackline represents the distance along the drift that the bottom was in view on the monitor aboard the ship. Video may not have been recorded at each station or for the full duration of the SEABOSS drift. The tracklines do not represent video of the water column during deployment or retrieval. Stations represented by SEABOSS tracklines 41-60 and 71-76 were rapid deployment sites where no video was collected. Only bottom photographs and sediment samples (when possible) were collected at these sites.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Navigation for survey 07003 used differential Global Positioning System (GPS). The recorded position of each node along the SEABOSS trackline is actually the position of the GPS antenna on the survey vessel, not the SEABOSS sampler. The SEABOSS was deployed approximately 5 meters astern of the GPS antenna off the ship's J-frame on the starboard side. No layback or offset was applied to the recorded position. In addition to the 5 meter offset the SEABOSS may drift away from the survey vessel when deployed to the seafloor. Based on the various sources for horizontal offsets, a conservative estimate the horizontal accuracy of the SEABOSS trackline is 20-30 meters.

Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) navigation was logged through a Microsoft HyperTerminal (version 5.1) session on a Dell Latitude D820 laptop computer running Windows XP, SP2. Log files were saved for each sampling watch then reformatted into log files by Julian Day (e.g. nav_sda.251) during post-processing. The AWK script HT_doGPGGA.awk was modified accordingly for each Julian Day and run (using GNU AWK version 3.1.6) on each Julian Day file creating a comma separated value (CSV) ASCII text file to parse for the GPGGA navigation string and reformatted the file for input to the Python ground-truth toolset. The individual Julian Day navigation files were concatenated into a single navigation file for the entire sampling survey (07003_allnav_gpgga_formatted.csv).

Create ESRI polyline shapefile joining the SEABOSS drift time log with the navigation based on matching date and time fields using ArcGIS 9.3 ArcToolbox tool "USGS GTC Tools v2008 - Drift_nav - Vee2008" (which uses the Python script "Script1_startend_9_2008proj.py (v.Oct 1, 2008) and Python version 2.5; inputs: drift file - drifttime_07003_CCBay.csv outfile - TEMP_drifttime_07003_CCBay.shp template- template_geo.shp navfile - 07003_allnav_gpgga_formatted.csv). The Python script reads the start and end times from the drift log file (drifttime_07003_CCBay.csv) and extracts the navigation points that fall within those start and end times, then it creates a polyline shapefile from the points with a unique line for each SEABOSS drift site.

XTools Pro (version 5.3.0) for ArcGIS desktop was used to reorganize, delete unnecessary fields and add new fields to the point shapefile's attribute table (Table Operations - Table Restructure). Table attributes for the survey ID ("SURVEYID'), device used to collect the data ('DEVICEID'), survey vessel name ('VEHICLEID') and were added and populated using the table editor in ArcMap (version 9.3). The length field ('LENGTH') was populated using 'Calculate Geometry' (Property=Length; Use coordinate system of the data frame=WGS 1984 UTM Zone 19N; Unit=Meters), which can be accessed by right-clicking on the attribute field name in the table view. The attributes for Julian day ('JULDAY'), start time ('STARTTIME'), end time ('ENDTIME'), and SEABOSS station number ('LINENAME') were already populated.

Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.30 flagged. This is necessary to enable the metadata to be successfully harvested for various data catalogs. In some cases, this meant adding text "Information unavailable" or "Information unavailable from original metadata" for those required fields that were left blank. Other minor edits were probably performed (title, publisher, publication place, etc.). The orignal metadata only had source information time period of content. In order to pass the metadata harvester, the rest of the required source information fields were populated. The metadata date (but not the metadata creator) was edited to reflect the date of these changes. The metadata available from a harvester may supersede metadata bundled within a download file. Compare the metadata dates to determine which metadata file is most recent.
