Field Activity 2022-306-FA

Identifier 2022-306-FA
Alternate names 22BIM01; 22BIM02
Purpose Resurveying a portion of the single-beam Echosounder Data (SBES) tracklines acquired under FAN 2017-305-FA specifically 17TST02, 17TST03, and 17TST04. Acquiring Multibeam Echosounder Data (MBES) along a pre defined polygon trajectory. The trajectory is the roof top mounted camera's line of sight nearshore Madeira Beach out to the ADCP offshore spotter buoy. Bathymetry data will assist researchers with wave data interpretation on and benthic morphology of the seafloor on the approach to and within the view of the the camera system.
Location St. Petersburg, Florida specifically Madeira Beach
Info derived MBES xyz, MBES tracklines, SBES xyz, SBES tracklines
