Multibeam bathymetry and acoustic backscatter data collected in 2016 for Lake Crescent, Olympic National Park, Washington

June 1, 2017

In February 2016 the U.S. Geological Survey, Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in cooperation with North Carolina State University and the National Park Service collected multibeam bathymetry and acoustic backscatter data in Lake Crescent located in Olympic National Park, Washington. These data were collected to support geologic hazard studies within the lake including mapping submarine landslides and faulting. Data were collected using a Reson 7111 multibeam echosounder pole-mounted to the 36-foot USGS R/V Parke Snavely.

This USGS data release provides the processed bathymetry data in ASCIIRaster format, the acoustic backscatter data in TIFF format, as well as PDF maps of shaded relief bathymetry and acoustic backscatter and FGDC metadata.
