Other ID: subFANS = 18CCT01, 18CCT02, 18CCT03, 18CCT04

Status: Completed

Organization(s): USGS, St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center

Funding Program(s): Hurricane Sandy Supplemental Funding (Miselis) (GX.13.MN00.GGH02.00)

Principal Investigator(s): Jennifer Miselis

Affiliate Investigator(s):

Information Specialist(s): Nancy DeWitt, Joseph Fredericks, Billy Reynolds, Chelsea Stalk

Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Benchmarks, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Single Beam, Sonar: Sound Velocity

Scientific Purpose/Goals: Reoccupy previous single-beam bathymetry survey tracklines and acquire seismic subbottom lines that traverse the surf zone by beach launching the 512i.

Vehicle(s): Rental Vehicle, Chevy Suburban - Silver

Start Port/Location: Fire Island National Seashore, Long Island, NY

End Port/Location: Fire Island National Seashore, Long Island, NY

Start Date: 2018-05-30

End Date: 2018-06-20

Equipment Used: Ashtech ProFlex 500 GNSS Receiver, Ashtech ProFlex 800 GNSS Receiver, Choke Ring Antenna, Collapsible Tripod, Other, Castaway-CTD, Chirp 512i, Generic - Echosounder

Information to be Derived: Single beam xyz data; sound velocity casts; seismic subbottom profiles; and GPS base station and GPS boat files used to process DGPS.

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Collected 416 single beam bathy lines, 193 SVP casts and 115 chirp 512i lines.
