Pre-Delta-X: UAVSAR Georeferenced Channel Maps, Atchafalaya Basin, LA, USA, 2016

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This dataset provides spatial data on water channels in the estuary of the Atchafalaya Basin of the Mississippi River Delta of coastal Louisiana. These Level-3 (L3) channel maps were developed from interferograms derived from Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) data collected on 2016-10-16 and 2016-10-17 during low and high tides. The channel maps define open water paths in hydrodynamic models and are used to evaluate model performance.
