February 19, 2020

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center in St. Petersburg, Florida (USGS-SPCSMC), conducted a bathymetric survey of the Northern Chandeleur Islands, in August 2018. During this study, multibeam bathymetry data were collected aboard the research vessel (R/V) Sallenger, while single-beam bathymetry data were collected aboard the R/V Jabba Jaw. Efforts were supported by the Barrier Island Evolution Project (BIER), which aims to characterize the interannual evolution of barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Eastern Seaboard.
