Summary

This dataset consists of a shapefile of points corresponding to water depth collected for the bathymetric survey of Caño Boquerón, in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico, conducted on August 21, 2015. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Environmental Quality Board, conducted a limnological study at Caño Boquerón, in Cabo Rojo 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 [...]

Purpose

The purpose of the bathymetric survey is to determine water depth, which is necessary to contour the bottom of the lagoon and calculate the water volume of the lagoon referenced to mean sea level. This dataset in shapefile format contains the water depth data points collected at Caño Boquerón, in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico, during the bathymetric survey conducted on August 21, 2015.
