Field Activity 2016-347-FA

Identifier 2016-347-FA
Alternate names 16BIM04 - RV Sallenger; 16BIM05 - RV Jabba Jaw; 16BIM06 - RV Mako
Purpose Investigate nearshore morphology, compare bathymetry with previous datasets
Location Ship Island, Horn Island, Mississippi, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Biloxi
Summary Collected 773 kilometers of single-beam bathymetric lines (333 lines); 627 kilometers of interferometric swath Bathymetry (166 lines); 110 sound velocity profiles; GPS data from four base stations in Rinex format.
Info derived XYZ bathymetric data points and a digital elevation model of the survey area.

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.
