Field Activity 10CCT02

Identifier 10CCT02
Purpose To create a complete modern topobathymetric map of the Mississippi barrier islands from Cat Island to Dauphin Island. Data to provide information for the following: sediment budget; assessment of immediate sand resources in the region, modern geologic framework; historical island change measurements; base-level assessment of the seafloor since the 2005 hurricane season
Location Horn Island, MS to Dauphin Island, AL
Summary A total of 192 chirp 2-D sub-bottom profiles, 192 swath, and 102 side scan lines were collected.
Info derived Submetrix swath bathymetry data; shallow sub-botom image profiles and, side-scan sonar mosaics
Comments Shop Staff (Pre-Cruise) - Dave Wegener contributed 1.5 weeks to design and fabrication; Richard Young was boat captain during 2 days of Side Scan equipment testing. Additional equipment: L3900 Klein Side Scan Towfish.
