Summary

A bathymetric survey of Norfork Lake, Arkansas-Missouri, was conducted in September-October, 2015, by the Lower Mississippi-Gulf Water Science Center of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) using methodologies for multi-beam sonar surveys similar to those described by Lee (2013) and Huizinga (2016). Data from the bathymetric survey were merged with data collected during a March 2008 aerial LiDAR survey provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District. Using Esri ArcGIS version 10.3.1, a feature dataset of the XYZ points from the merged LiDAR and bathymetry data was created within a file geodatabase and an associated terrain (digital terrain model, or DTM) created from the XYZ feature dataset. Products derived from the [...]

Purpose

The DTM in the Esri file geodatabase associated with this data product and products derived from it are intended to be used to update the published storage capacity and bathymetric maps of Norfork Lake and provide a foundation for interpretive work. The DTM can be used to create DEMs at various resolutions and bathymetric contours at various intervals.
