Field Activity 2015-304-FA

Identifier 2015-304-FA
Purpose To perform an interferometric swath bathymetric survey of Lostmans River and unmapped portions of the Shark River. The goal is to merge this data with previous swath surveys in this area for complete bathymetry coverage. This effort is needed for resource management and hydrologic modeling work in ENP.
Location Everglades National Park (ENP), specifically Lostman's River and portions of Shark River
Info derived Georeferenced XYZ point data and database readable by ArcGIS software.
Projects
Platform
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
