Field Activity 10CCT03

Identifier 10CCT03
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 Geophysical data including side scan sonar, bathymetry and sub-bottom profiles were successfully acquired during this survey.
Info derived Submetrix swath bathymetry data; shallow sub-bottom image profiles, sediment thickness and side-scan sonar mosaics
Comments Additional Equipment: L3900 Klein Side Scan Towfish (USGS); Multibeam RESON SeaBat 8125 (USACE) and DGPS‚ Applanix POS MV (USACE).
