Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains a unified GeoTiff with 50x50 meter cell size representing the slope of the Charleston Bump off of the South Atlantic Bight, derived from singlebeam SoNar data collected in 2000 by the NOAA Ship Whiting. NOAA's NOS/NCCOS/CCMA Biogeography Branch, in collaboration with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, as well as the NOAA Ship Whiting, and private sector partners, acquired singlebeam bathymetry data off the Charleston Bump from 03/25/2000 to 03/28/2000. Data was acquired with a hull-mounted Kongsberg Simrad Singlebeam echosounder. It was processed by interpolating a bathymetrical surface from feature class points using the spatial analyst natural neighbor tool with 9 neighbor cell radius. The raster surface was exported as a 50m GeoTiff and the slope was derived by using the ESRI ArcMap10 Spatial Analyst Slope tool.
Purpose:
Purpose: This singlebeam data was processed as part of a mulitagency cooperative deep-sea coral assessment. The singlebeam component of the cruise was intended to both provide fine scale acoustic imagery of known deep coral sites, as well as serve as a nautical survey for charting purposes. The slope of the bathymetry is for the purpose of habitat delineation and classification.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
As the survey was not conducted to meet IHO standards, all users should independently analyze the dataset according to their own needs and standards to determine data usability.
Completeness_Report:
This GeoTiff is sourced from a CARIS gridded dataset. The original full-resolution singlebeam data was used to create a downsampled uniform-resolution CARIS BASE (Bathymetry Associated with Statistical Error) surface grid with a best depth component. The downsampled grid nodes from that depth surface were then exported and used to generate the ESRI Grid. Some positional shifts may have occurred between the original data points and the transformed grid.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
For this project, data was collected aboard the NOAA Ship Whiting from 03/25/00 to 03/28/00. Singlebeam data were acquired in .all format with a hull-mounted Kongsberg Simrad singlebeam echosounder. Backscatter snippet collection was enabled. Line spacing for acquisition was three times the water depth, and data was retained out to 60 degrees from nadir. Heave, roll, pitch and heading correctors were collected using an Applanix POS/MV Model 320 V4 inertial measurement unit (IMU) and associated Trimble GPS antennas. Sound velocity profiles were acquired with a Seabird Electronics SeaCat SBE19P CTD profiler and processed using NOAA's Velocwin V8.85 software, then applied directly to the raw data. Positioning was obtained using Trimble Zephyr GPS receivers. Data was reduced to Mean Lower-Low Water (MLLW) using final approved tides from NOAA COOPS, based on National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON).
Process_Date: 2012
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Raw .all data were converted and processed using CARIS HIPS v6.0 software, resulting in a CARIS HDCS format dataset with all correctors applied. Attitude and SWMB data was cleaned of fliers, and SWMB data was reviewed in subset mode by a NOAA contractor.
Source_Used_Citation_Abbreviation: Raw Singlebeam Data
Process_Date: 2012
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
After being submitted to CCMA by the contractor, CARIS HIPS v6.0 was used to generate a CARIS BASE surface (similar to a DTM), based on weighted swath angle, from the processed HDCS data. Then CARIS export tool "BASE Surface to ASCII" was used to export a point feature class in NAD83 UTM zone 17N.
Source_Used_Citation_Abbreviation: HDCS Processed Singlebeam Data
Process_Date: 2012
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The feature class points were interpolated into a grid using ArcMap 10.0 with the spatial analyst natural neighbor interpolation tool, which generated a 50m DTM raster by weighting averages of 9 cell neighborhoods to create a smooth interpolated surface. The grid was exported as GeoTiff in the UTM North American Datum (1983) Zone 17 N. The Arc10 Spatial Analyst slope tool was then used to derive the slope information from the raster.
