Summary
Abstract: In November 1999, the U. S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with
Coastal Carolina University, began a program to produce geologic maps
of the nearshore regime off northern South Carolina, utilizing high
resolution sidescan sonar, interferometric (direct phase methods)
swath bathymetry, and seismic subbottom profiling systems. The study
areas extends from the ~7m isobath to about 10km offshore (water
depths <12m). The goals of the investigation are to determine regional
scale sand resource availability needed for planned beach nourishment
programs, to investigate the roles that the inner shelf morphology and
geologic framework play in the evolution of this coastal region, and
to provide baseline geologic maps for use in proposed biologic habitat
studies.

This CD-ROM contains digital high resolution seismic reflection data
collected during the USGS ATSV 99044 cruise. The coverage is the
nearshore of the northern South Carolina. The seismic-reflection data
are stored as SEG-Y standard format that can be read and manipulated
by most seismic-processing software. Much of the information specific
to the data are contained in the headers of the SEG-Y format
files. The file system format is ISO 9660 which can be read with DOS,
Unix, and MAC operating systems with the appropriate CD-ROM driver
software installed.
