This CD-ROM contains copies of the navigation and field
sidescan sonar data collected during USGS Cruise 96005 aboard the MS COASTAL
II The cruise was conducted during 1-14 June, 1996, and
was a collaborative field program between researchers at Coastal Carolina University
and the USGS, Coastal and Marine
Geology Program, Woods Hole Field
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.
