Field Activity 2016-030-FA

Identifier 2016-030-FA
Purpose Jetyak operations to map Sandwich Town Beach nearshore
Location Sandwich Town Neck Beach, Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, United States, Atlantic Ocean
Summary Jetyak bathymetric/backscatter survey of the nearshore was completed
Info derived bathymetry, backscatter, navigation
Comments The RTK-GPS system we are using is a Spectra SP80. We are also using a Hemisphere GPS heading system installed on the jetyak. Entries for this field activity are based on entries from Field Activity 2016-006-FA. Platform used for sidescan/bathymetry/navigation is the USGS modified kayak named the jetyak.
