Assessing the Effectiveness of Nourishment in Decadal Barrier Island Morphological Resilience: Model Inputs and Outputs

The effectiveness of nourishment in decadal barrier island morphological resilience was assessed using the XBeach model to simulate morphologic change over a 30-year period at Dauphin Island, AL, under scenarios of no-action and beach and dune nourishment, as described in Passeri et al., 2021.

Coastal Cliff Top and Toe Delineation Derived from Lidar for Puerto Rico: 2018

The National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards project aims to understand and forecast coastal landscape change. This dataset delineates coastal cliff features (cliff tops, toes, and 3D elevation transects) to assess the hazard posed by eroding coastal cliffs in Puerto Rico, Culebra, and Vieques.

Historical Bathymetry in the Mississippi-Alabama Coastal Region: Bathymetric Soundings, Gridded Digital Elevation Model, and Hydrographic Sheets (Ver. 2.0)

Hydrographic sheets (H-sheets) produced by the National Ocean Service (NOS) during the 1800s provide historic sounding (water depth) measurements of coastal areas. The data can be vectorized into a geographic information system (GIS), adjusted to a modern vertical datum, and converted into a digital elevation model to provide an interpretation of the historic seafloor elevation. These data...

Post-Hurricane Florence Aerial Imagery: Cape Fear to Duck, North Carolina, October 6-8, 2018

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Remote Sensing Coastal Change (RSCC) project collects aerial imagery along coastal swaths, in response to storm events, with optimized endlap/sidelap and precise position information to create high-resolution orthomosaics, three-dimensional (3D) point clouds, and digital elevation/surface models (DEMs/DSMs) using Structure-from-Motio

Archive of Digitized Analog Boomer Seismic Reflection Data Collected from the Northern Gulf of Mexico: Intersea 1980

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program (CMHRP) has actively collected geophysical and sedimentological data in the northern Gulf of Mexico for several decades, including shallow subsurface data in the form of high-resolution seismic reflection profiles (HRSP). Prior to the mid-1990s most HRSP data were collected in analog format as paper r

Coastal Single-beam Bathymetry Data Collected in September and October 2019 from Rockaway Peninsula, New York

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (USGS - SPCMSC) in St. Petersburg, Florida, conducted a single-beam bathymetric survey of Rockaway Peninsula, New York September 27 - October 6, 2019. During this study, bathymetry data were collected aboard two personal watercraft (PWC) outfitted with single-beam echosounders, as well
