Abstract:
In 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC), in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conducted a geophysical and sampling survey of the riverbed of the Upper St. Clair River between Port Huron, MI, and Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. The objectives were to define the Quaternary geologic framework of the St. Clair River to evaluate the relationship between morphologic change of the riverbed and underlying stratigraphy. This report presents the geophysical and sample data collected from the St. Clair River, May 29-June 6, 2008 as part of the International Upper Great Lakes Study, a 5-year project funded by the International Joint Commission of the United States and Canada to examine whether physical changes in the St. Clair River are affecting water levels within the upper Great Lakes, to assess regulation plans for outflows from Lake Superior, and to examine the potential effect of climate change on the Great Lakes water levels ( http://www.iugls.org). This document makes available the data that were used in a separate report, U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2009-1137, which detailed the interpretations of the Quaternary geologic framework of the region. This report includes a description of the suite of high-resolution acoustic and sediment-sampling systems that were used to map the morphology, surficial sediment distribution, and underlying geology of the Upper St. Clair River during USGS field activity 2008-016-FA . Video and photographs of the riverbed were also collected and are included in this data release. Future analyses will be focused on substrate erosion and its effects on river-channel morphology and geometry. Ultimately, the International Upper Great Lakes Study will attempt to determine where physical changes in the St. Clair River affect water flow and, subsequently, water levels in the Upper Great Lakes.
Purpose:
This data set includes the bottom photograph locations and links to the bottom photographs (JPG images) collected within the St. Clair River between Michigan and Ontario, Canada during USGS Cruise 08016. The bottom photographs were collected to ground-truth the geophysical data collected and to characterize the surficial sediment along the riverbed.

Logical_Consistency_Report:
All bottom photographs were collected with the mini-SEABOSS (SEABed Observation and Sampling System) by the U.S. Geological Survey within the St. Clair River between Michigan and Ontario, Canada in 2008.
Blackwood and Parolski, 2001
Completeness_Report:
Video and digital photographs were collected at 37 locations using the USGS Mini SEABOSS (Blackwood and Parolski, 2001). A total of 449 photographs were obtained from a digital still camera at user-selected locations along the video drifts.
Sample, photographic and video navigation for locations 1, 2 and (up to time: 13:31 for location 3) used navigation from the video time stamp, as navigation was not recorded in HYPACK. HYPACK navigation was available for bottom sample 3 location and from 13:31 to the end of file for photographs and video at location 3.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Navigation for the mini-SEABOSS: Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) navigation data were acquired with a Communications Systems International (CSI), Inc. LGBX Pro receiver. The CSI LGBX Pro received positions from a DGPS antenna located on the port, aft roof of the R/V Rafael cabin. DGPS positions were recorded within HYPACK (www.hypack.com) navigation software. Offsets between the DGPS antenna and the mini-SEABOSS were not measured. DGPS accuracy is 1 to 3 meters, depending on the distance from a US Coast Guard coastal repeater station (<http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/>). However, the horizontal position of the mini-SEABOSS during sample collection is assumed to be +/- 10 meters at best, due to a lack of precise positional data at the time of sample recovery.
With the mini-SEABOSS deployed, the research vessel was allowed to drift with occasional power from the vessel to control drift direction. Bottom photographs were acquired at user-selected locations along the drift. Video drift position was derived from the HYPACK navigation files based on start and end times. The drift navigation was merged with the digital photographs based on time of day.

Process_Description:
Video and digital photographs were collected at 37 stations using the USGS Mini SEABOSS (Blackwood and Parolski, 2001). Mini SEABOSS stations were selected based on preliminary acoustic-backscatter mosaics, with the objective of characterizing broad areas of different backscatter intensity. With the Mini SEABOSS deployed, the research vessel was allowed to drift with occasional power from the vessel to control drift direction. Continuous video was collected over a total of 11.5 km of lake and riverbed. Video drift position was derived from the HYPACK® navigation files based on the start and end times of the drift. For some portions of the drift, there was no navigation, so the position was derived from the time and position stamp in the video at 30-s intervals. A total of 449 photographs were obtained from a digital still camera at user-selected locations along the video drifts.
Gaps in sequential photo numbers exist. If the camera was triggered accidentally on deck or the photograph was of poor quality or location (e.g. photograph within water column), the photograph was not saved.
Grab samples of the surficial sediment were collected at 15 stations, typically at the end of a drift. The upper 2 cm of sediment was scraped from the surface of the sample for texture analysis. Sediment samples were collected at locations with relatively fine-grained sediment (sand or mud). Samples were not collected in gravel or cobble areas where gravel prevented full closure of the sampler and resulted in a washed-out sample.
A total of 13 bottom samples were submitted for grain-size analysis. Two partially recovered, washed-out samples were not submitted. Grain-size analysis was performed at the USGS Sediment Laboratory at WHCMSC using methods described by Poppe and others (2005).
The mini-SEABOSS is housed with a Minolta CO., LTD, DiMAGE 7Hi camera. The full resolution of the acquired images is 2560 x 1920 pixels.
The EXIF header of the JPEG images contains the time the photo was taken (UTC times) as well as information about the camera used and resolution of the images.

Process_Description:
A total of 449 bottom photographs were obtained from a digital camera configured on the mini-SEABOSS. The photographs were taken at user-selected locations along the mini-SEABOSS video drifts.
Sample locations for sample 1 and 2 were read from the video time stamp, as HYPACK navigation was not available. The position information at the end of the video drift was used as position of the sample. (Samples were acquired at the end of video drifts).

The digital images were recorded on a compact flash card within the camera. Digital images were downloaded to a local disk and stored within folders with a naming convention based on the Julian Day of data collection. For example, 'bottomphotos155' contains all digital images collected during Julian Day 155.
Full resolution JPEG images were desampled in order to create an image set that would enable faster download.
The following command was used to resize the JPEG images:

Process_Description:
Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.36 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 link to the data in the Distribution_Information section had to be fixed. Attempted to modify http to https where appropriate. Reordered the links in the identification section to have a landing page link as the first link. Moved the minimal source information provided to make it the first process step. The distribution format name was modified in an attempt to be more consistent with other metadata files of the same data format. Added the distribution format JPEG to account for the JPEG images in the zip file. 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.
