Marine Seismic Imaging

The USGS Coastal/Marine Hazards and Resources Program is a leader in the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of high-resolution seismic data collected in the open ocean, on the continental shelf, and in estuaries, lakes, canals, and rivers. Depending on the scientific target of a survey, the CMHRP uses a variety of acoustic sources (chirp, sparker, boomer, or airguns) to image sediment...

Standards, Services, and Science

Scientists spend considerable time managing the vast amount of data they collect. The volume of scientific data has increased substantially over the past decade due to advances in data collection technology and in the breadth of output produced by models. At the same time, the scientific community has worked to make it easier for the public to obtain data that were once available only by...

CMHRP Response to Hurricane Sandy in Estuaries and Wetlands

In late October 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the eastern seaboard of the United States, affecting the coastline from North Carolina to New York and Massachusetts. In addition to causing more than 200 human fatalities, the storm altered coastal landscapes, geology, hydrology, environmental quality, and ecosystems. Damage to infrastructure from Hurricane Sandy totaled over $75 billion...

Use of Lidar in Coastal Studies

Since 1998, airborne light detection and ranging, or lidar, capabilities have been developed and utilized to support CMHRP research projects and hazard assessments. Lidar is a remote-sensing technique that measures distance to a target by sending out light energy and detecting how long it takes the reflected pulses to return to the sensor. Lidar data provide information about the elevation,...
