Sediment Classification Data, Assateague Island National Seashore

Metadata Updated: February 12, 2024

This dataset contains sediment grain-size classification data develop from during acoustic surveys completed along the 58‐km long Assateague barrier island stretching from the Ocean City inlet in Maryland, down past Chincoteague Island in northern Virginia. The data was collected June 20th-25th, 2014 and May 12th - 21th, 2015. Full coverage side-scan sonar and partial coverage bathymetry data were collected using an EdgeTech 6205 Multiphase Echosounder. In total, 73 square kilometers were mapped at primarily at 100m line spacing and 80 m swath range per channel (to allow overlap between lines).
