Archive of Chirp Subbottom Profile Data Collected in June 2022 Near Panama City, Florida
As part of the Coastal Sediment Availability and Flux and Defense Advanced Research Protection Agency (DARPA) Reefense projects, scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) conducted a nearshore geophysical survey to map and characterize the stratigraphy of back-barrier bays near Panama City, Florida (FL) in June 2022. The purpose of this study was to conduct a geologic assessment (including bathymetric mapping) of the environs near Panama City, FL, in support of efforts to construct an artificial and living oyster reef near Tyndall Air Force Base. Collecting geophysical data can provide information about sediment thickness and sub-seafloor structure that can inform the siting and assess the stability of artificial and natural reef structures that will be placed on the seafloor during the project's later phases.
This data release serves as an archive of subbottom profile and navigation data collected June 20-30, 2022, near Panama City, FL, during USGS Field Activity Number 2022-312-FA. Data products, including chirp subbottom profile data and images, survey trackline maps, location data with formal Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) metadata, and field logs are provided. Coastal bathymetry and sediment data were also collected during this geophysical survey and will be provided in other data releases.
