Atlantic and Gulf Coast Sandy Coastline Topo-Bathy Profile and Characteristic Database
Seamless topographic-bathymetric (topo-bathy) profiles and their derived morphologic characteristics were developed for sandy coastlines along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. The topo-bathy profiles are published as a database in the Hierarchical Data Format version 5 (HDF5) which contain cross-shore distance coordinates, Universe Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate system Easting and Northing coordinates, and various morphologic characteristics. As such, the rocky coasts of Maine, the coral reefs in southern Florida and the Keys, and the marsh coasts in the Mississippi Delta and the Florida Big Bend region are not included in this dataset. A total of 3,897 topo-bathy profiles are included in the HDF5 database file. For further information regarding generation of these seamless topo-bathy profiles refer to Mickey and Passeri, 2022.
