Summary

These data are bathymetry (river bottom elevation) in XYZ format, generated from the April 4-5, 2017, bathymetric survey of the Rolling Fork and Beech Fork near Boston, Kentucky. The bathymetry was collected from approximately 1.9 miles upstream from Kentucky State Highway 62 on the Beech Fork and approximately 1.5 miles upstream from Kentucky State Highway 62 on the Rolling Fork, to 2.6 miles downstream from Kentucky State Highway 62 on the Rolling Fork. Hydrographic data were collected using an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) with integrated Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS). Data were collected as the surveying vessel traversed the river, approximately perpendicular to the velocity vectors at 70 cross sections [...]
