USGS Open-File Report 97-485
This CD-ROM contains copies of the navigation and field sidescan sonar data collected during USGS Cruise 97009 aboard the R/V MS Coastal. The cruise was conducted during 24 February - 8 March, 1997 and was a collaborative field program between researchers at Coastal Carolina University and the USGS, Coastal and Marine Geology Program,Woods Hole Field Center.
The ultimate goal of the SC Coastal Erosion Study is to develop a
statewide sediment budget and geologic framework of the barrier island/inlet systems of
South Carolina. USGS sidescan data collection helped document sand migration within the
nearshore zone, quantify the sediment transport associated with ebb tidal delta complexes,
and understand physical stresses on nearshore morphology.
