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...

The Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport Modeling System

To responsibly manage our coastal resources requires an understanding of the processes responsible for coastal change. The CMHRP developed a Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere–Wave–Sediment Transport (COAWST) modeling system that allows the user to evaluate how different processes such as winds and waves,...
