Title March 2010 Sand Level Measurements in Nearshore Southern California.

Abstract This data set contains 5-column ASCII survey point data from a strip of San Diego County Coastline extending from the Tijuana River mouth northward approximately 3.8km to the second breakwater north of the Imperial Beach pier. Low tide data was collected with the ATV sampled at 5 Hz.

Purpose The data described in this document will be compared with forthcoming data sets to determine rates of shoreline change along the San Diego County Coastline and as a ground truth for simultaneous Lidar surveys as scheduled.

Supplemental_Information Terrestrial (ATV) systems utilizing Ashtech Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers (Z-Extreme) provide platform positioning. The GPS receivers record pseudo-range and phase information at 5Hz for post-processing. Orientation is determined with a GyroTrac Gyro recording roll, pitch and yaw at 10 Hz. In addition to post-processed data, 1 Hz real-time kinematic carrier phase differentially corrected data are also acquired as a navigation aid and as a supplement to post-processed data. The data files are comprised of five columns: Lat, Lon, Z(rel. to MSL), DateTime(UTC), Substrate type. The Substrate type is defined by a numeric code: 0 = No data, 1 = Sand, 2 = Cobbles, 3 = Bedrock. The substrate type was identified by the ATV driver at the time of the survey.

Driver: Kent/Rob Low tide was 0.6 @ 4:34PM IB Base Station: Lat: 32 deg 34 min 43.66388 sec Lon: -117 deg 07 min 57.23691 sec Height: -29.080 meters GPS sampling was 5Hz for the ATV and 5Hz for the Base. ATV antenna height 1.720M. atvgeoidall.m was used to filter the data.

Process_Description Transfer raw GPS data from both base station and rover Ashtech GPS receivers to processing computer. Waypoint Consulting's Grafnav program processes the dual frequency GPS data for an IRTF00 solution. Matlab programs then adjust the position and elevation by using the gyro data.
