Chimney Bluffs digital elevation model (DEM) from low-altitude aerial imagery from unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flights over of the Lake Ontario shoreline in the vicinity of Chimney Bluffs, New York in July 2017 (32-bit floating point GeoTIFF image)

Low-altitude (80-100 meters above ground level) digital images were obtained from a camera mounted on a 3DR Solo quadcopter, a small unmanned aerial system (UAS), in three locations along the Lake Ontario shoreline in New York during July 2017. These data were collected to document and monitor effects of high lake levels, including shoreline erosion, inundation, and property damage in the...

Water level measurements collected in West Falmouth Harbor, MA, 2017

Water-level gauges were deployed at two sites in West Falmouth Harbor between April and June 2017.  One gauge was mounted under the town-owned West Falmouth boat dock and the other on the private Associates dock near the mouth of the Harbor. Data from the upper sensor at the Associates dock were used to make atmospheric pressure corrections at both sites.

Water level measurements collected in West Falmouth Harbor, MA, May - October 2016

Water-level gauges were deployed at two sites in West Falmouth Harbor between May and October 2016. Two sequential deployments were required to provide measurements for the entire period. One gauge was mounted under the town-owned West Falmouth boat dock and the other on the private Associates dock near the mouth of the Harbor.

Oceanographic and Water-Quality Measurements collected south of Martha’s Vineyard, MA, November - December, 2015

Two platforms were deployed at adjacent sites near the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO ) to compare their ability to measure bottom shear stress. One platform was a low-profile (20 cm-high) sled, and the other platform was a large (2.5-m high) quadpod. Both platforms supported a pair of single-point acoustic-Doppler current...

1-meter backscatter imagery collected in 2012 by the U.S. Geological Survey in the Connecticut River during field activity 2012-024-FA (GeoTIFF image)

A geophysical and geological survey was conducted at the mouth of the Connecticut River from Old Saybrook to Essex, Connecticut, in September 2012. Approximately 230 linear kilometers of digital Chirp subbottom (seismic-reflection) and 234-kilohertz interferometric sonar (bathymetric and backscatter) data were collected along with sediment samples, riverbed photographs, and (or) video at 88...

Oceanographic and Water-Quality Measurements collected south of Martha’s Vineyard, MA, 2014–2015

The objective was to measure bottom stress at several locations with varying bottom depths, sediment types, and bedforms. Instruments to measure water temperature, conductivity, pressure, optical turbidity, and velocity were deployed between July 2014 and January 2015. Bottom platforms with upward-looking acoustic Doppler current profilers, pressure sensors, and water-quality sensors were...

Oceanographic and Water Quality Measurements in Chincoteague Bay, Maryland/Virginia, 2014 - 2015

The primary objective was to measure the physical response of the system to storm events, and identify processes that may affect estuarine resilience. Bottom landing platforms with instrumentation to measure currents, waves, water level, optical turbidity, water temperature, conductivity and water quality parameters were deployed at most sites.
