The Geological Survey of Alabama (GSA) generated this dataset from geoTIFF MODIS images as part of the Sediment Analysis Network for Decision Support (SANDS) project. The geoTIFF images were analyzed for sediment redistribution after hurricanes on the Gulf coast. Daytime images for MODIS Aqua Reflectance bands 8-16 for H10V6 and H10V5 were analyzed for each storm. These are seasonal data for storms from 2001-2008. In addition to the analyzed files, the data files include the ESRI files for zipped bands and/or grids, metadata, and storm temporal information for the sediment analysis images.
Live fish samples are currently held in quarantine facilities at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. Fish will be terminal sampled at the end of the experiment (liver and fish tissue samples) and stored at the University of Otago. Please contact the investigator for more information.
