Summary

This dataset consists of a shapefile of points corresponding to water depth collected for the bathymetric survey of Puerto Mosquito, in Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico, on August 11, 2015. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Environmental Quality Board, conducted a limnological study at Puerto Mosquito in Vieques to assess the principal mechanisms affecting the hydrology and water quality characteristics. The study characterized hydrologic and physical-chemical properties, sediment deposition rates, bathymetry, and biological conditions. The bathymetric survey system used for the study consisted of coupling a global positioning system (GPS) device with a water depth sounder. Established navigation lines were [...]

Purpose

The purpose of the bathymetric survey is to determine water depth, which is necessary to contour the bottom of lagoon and calculate the water volume of the lagoon referenced to mean sea level. This dataset in shapefile format contains the generated water depth data points for Puerto Mosquito, in Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico, during the bathymetric survey conducted on August 11, 2015.
