Field Activity 07CCT01

Identifier 07CCT01
Alternate names Ship Island Nearshore Bathymetry Pilot Survey
Purpose To utilize four remaining days of a LA survey to survey two important areas of Ship Island, MS (Camille Cut and Fort Massachusetts). This will be the start of a larger effort assessing (quantitatively and qualitatively) the future of these barrier islands
Location Ship Island, MS
Summary Surveyed more than 220 kilometers of tracklines, Collected 4 days of static base station occupation time on National Geodetic Survey (NGS) benchmarks
Info derived High precision single beam bathymetry (X, Y, Z) data; purpose being to acquire the latest bathymetry to assist in calculating sediment gain/loss and barrier island migration or degradation
