Purpose
To create a complete modern topobathymetric map of the Mississippi barrier
islands from Cat Island to Dauphin Island.  Data to provide information for the
following: sediment budget; assessment of immediate sand resources in the
region, modern geologic framework; historical island change measurements;
base-level assessment of the seafloor since the 2005 hurricane season
Information to be Derived
High precision single beam bathymetry (X, Y, Z), Submetrix swath bathymetry
data; subbotom image profiles, high precision (X, Y, Z) shoreline topography.
