Field Activity 2016-342-FA

Identifier 2016-342-FA
Purpose Collect reconnaissance geophysical data from the inner shelf of the Cape Canaveral Coastal System.
Location Cape Canaveral, FL
Summary 1) processed elevation point data (xyz) and digital elevation model (DEM), 2) processed images of backscatter and side scan sonar (SSS), and 3) chirp subbottom profile data (segy and jpg).
Info derived bathymetry, side scan sonar, and seismic reflection data
Comments Funded in part through a cooperative agreement with Coastal Carolina University (via SC Sea Grant). Data collected will be processed by CCU. Kongsberg EM3002D dual-head multibeam sonar system and Applied Microsystems smart SV were used for bathymetry and an EdgeTech 512i for seismic acquisition.
