Summary

This USGS data release presents data collected during surveys of nearshore bathymetry and beach topography from the Columbia River littoral cell, Washington and Oregon. Survey operations were conducted between July 14 and August 16, 2014 (USGS Field Activity Number 2014-631-FA) by a team of scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center, Washington State Department of Ecology, and Oregon State University.
