Wagner, D.M., and Whaling, A.R., 2019, Bathymetry and Storage Capacity of Dierks Lake, Arkansas (ver. 1.1, August 2019): U.S. Geological Survey data release,


A bathymetric survey of Dierks Lake, Arkansas, was conducted in late June - early July 2018 by the Lower Mississippi-Gulf Water Science Center of the U.S. Geological Surveys using methodologies for sonar surveys similar to those described by Wilson and Richards (2006) and Richards and Huizinga (2018). Data from the bathymetric survey were combined with data from an aerial Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) survey conducted in 2016 by the National Resources Conservation Service (U.S. Geological Survey, 2017) to create a digital elevation model (DEM) of the extent of the flood pool of the lake and compute volume (storage capacity) of the lake at 1-foot increments in water surface elevation from 444-557 feet (ft) above the North American [...]

Bathymetric data were collected and merged with aerial LiDAR data to update bathymetric maps and storage capacity of the lake. The bathymetric maps are provided as DEMs in Esri GRID format and are intended to be used as a foundation for interpretive work. An additional DEM, in GeoTIFF format and in horizontal and vertical units of meters, is provided as a child item of this data release for compatibility across numerous software packages.
