Field Activity 2016-335-FA

Identifier 2016-335-FA
Alternate names 16BIM01, 16BIM02, 16BIM03
Purpose 1) Measure bathymetric change and borrow site deposition on the N. Chandeleurs island platform and 2) Provide elevation control for topo-bathymetric lidar survey
Location Chandeleur Islands, LA, Gulf of Mexico
Summary 16BIM01: Collected 82 subbottom profiles, 48 interferometric swath bathymetry lines and 34 SVP casts 16BIM03: Static ground control points (includes bare earth, vegetation, and ground control) (62), CTD profiles (9), Secchi disk readings (9)​
Info derived Topographic and bathymetric elevations, deposit stratigraphy, and verification of lidar data
Comments Subfans: 16BIM01 = R/V Sallenger 16BIM02 = R/V Jabba Jaw 16BIM03 = Lidar ground support on foot

Platform
Sallenger
25' Parker
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.
Vehicles
