Description:
Abstract:
These data were collected in a collaboration between the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The primary objective of this program was to collect baseline bathymetry for Muskeget Channel, Massachusetts, and identify areas of morphologic change within and around the channel. Repeat surveys in select areas were collected one month apart to monitor change. These data were collected to support an assessment of the effect on sediment transport that a tidal instream energy conversion facility would have within Muskeget Channel. Accurate data and maps of sea-floor topography are important first steps in monitoring bedform migration, fish habitat, marine resources, and environmental changes due to natural or human impacts. The data include high-resolution bathymetry, acoustic-backscatter intensity, sound velocity in water, and navigation data. These data were collected during two surveys between October 2010 and November 2011 onboard the research vessel (RV) Rafael using an SEA Ltd. SwathPlus interferometric sonar (234 kilohertz). More information about the cruise can be found on the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center field activity Web page at https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2010-072-FA.
Purpose:
This data set contains tracklines for just less than 227 km of swath bathymetric data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in Woods Hole, MA during geophysical cruises offshore of Martha's Vineyard, MA in the vicinity of Muskeget Channel in 2010. The swath bathymetric data will be used to characterize the seafloor within the area and these data document those locations.

The navigation for these data was acquired with a Coda Octopus F180 Differential Global Positioning System + Wide Area Augmentation System (DGPS+WAAS); they are accurate to + or - 1 to 2 meters, horizontally. All DGPS data are referenced to WGS84, and vertical distance between the pole-mounted interferometric sonar head, 0.5m below the sea surface, and the DGPS antenna located on the same pole on the bow of the R/V Rafael, 2.5 m above the sea surface, are corrected.

Trackline acquisition at sea: These bathymetric data were collected with a SEA Ltd Swathplus interferometric sonar (234 kHz) mounted on the bow of the R/V Rafael of Woods Hole, MA. The data were acquired with SwathPlus Software (versions: 3.7.10). Tracklines are spaced 70 m apart.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Navigation was extracted from the bathymetric data (raw *SXR format) in SwathPlus (version: 3.7.10) using the 'output position file' function.

Process_Description:
Navigation output from Swathplus (version: 3.7.10) was concatenated together for all files within a survey and converted to comma-separated value text using AWK for input to ArcGIS (version 9.3.1). In ArcCatalog (9.3.1), navigation text was converted to a point feature class by right-clicking on the comma separated text file -- Create Feature Class -- from XY table and choosing UTM, Zone 19N, WGS 84 as the projection

Process_Description:
XTools Pro (version 7.1.0) was then used within ArcMap (version 9.3.1) to convert the navigation points to a trackline shapefile. The trackline shapefiles were edited to remove spurious fixes, and a length field was created and populated using 'Calculate Geometry', which can be accessed by right-clicking on the attribute field name in the table view. The calculation was based on UTM, Zone 19N, WGS84 in the units of meters.

Process_Description:
Additional fields were created for the trackline file in ArcMap (version 9.3.1) by selecting options on the attribute table, then 'Add field'. Survey_ID and VehicleID are used to determine which survey the lines are associated with and which vessel was used to collect the data.

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.). Attempted to modify http to https where appropriate. Added the DOI link in the Identification section - both as the first link and as part of the Larger Work citation. Removed LIDAR bounding coordinates - an artifact of Esri and MP processing. The source information was incomplete and had to be modified to meet the standard. 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.
