Topobathy Products in Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, North Carolina in November 2020 and April, September, and October 2021

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

The data in this part of the release characterize the beach and nearshore environment at the USGS DUring Nearshore Event eXperiment (DUNEX) site on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge (PINWR) and at the Basnight Bridge (BB), NC. In November 2020, April, September, and October 2021, USGS and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) scientists conducted multiple field surveys to collect a topobathy elevation time series. Bathymetry for topobathy products was collected in the nearshore using a single-beam echosounder mounted on a surf capable self-righting electric autonomous survey vehicle. Topography is produced using GPS walking surveys or structure-from-motion (SfM) with the imagery and ground control point data provided in the larger citation. DUNEX is a multi-agency, academic, and non-governmental organization collaborative community experiment designed to study nearshore coastal processes during storm events. USGS participation in DUNEX will contribute new measurements and models that will increase our understanding of storm impacts to coastal environments, including hazards to humans and infrastructure and changes in landscape and natural habitats. Collected data are part of field activity 2021-029-FA and donated data 2020-024-DD and are related to field activity 2021-028-FA and 2021-032-FA.
