The results of this study will prioritize information needs (bathymetric and hydrologic) for all tributaries flowing into the Ten Thousand Islands Aquatic Preserve, by conducting bathymetric surveys along priority estuarine rivers and offshore coastal areas and by describing the hydrodynamic characteristics of estuarine rivers (tidal magnitudes) and relevance to the overall circulation and mixing patterns of the area. This project addresses the collection and interpretation of data necessary to develop the present day bathymetry offshore from Wiggins Pass to Cape Romano, Florida.
Wiggins Pass to Cape Romano, FL
Number of soundings: 186,203 in comma-delimited and Esri point shapefile formats.
Single beam bathymetry (X,Y,Z) data. Products are ASCII text files of the sounding data and point shapefiles representing seafloor elevations.
Platform: Outboard motor boat. All data were processed relative to the WGS84 (G1150) ellipsoid.
