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
Submetrix swath bathymetry data; shallow sub-botom image profiles and ,
side-scan sonar mosaics
Notes
Shop Staff (Pre-Cruise) - Dave Wegener contributed 1.5 weeks to design and 
fabrication; Richard Young was boat captain during 2 days of Side Scan equipment 
testing
Precruise prep; Dave Wegener, Rich Young
