The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary's "objectives for the survey effort were three-fold: 1) to obtain existing conditions of the nearshore bathymetry and intertidal zone along a select portion of shoreline that is not ascertainable through ship-based acoustic data acquisition techniques due to hazardous surf conditions, 2) to assess the performance of [airborne LIDAR bathymetry] technology along both exposed and unexposed stretches of coastline, and 3) to vertically transform the ALB data and assess agreement with existing shallow water multibeam bathymetry data collected in the same area."
Approximately 40.7 square km of nearshore bathymetry and coastline between Koitlah Point and Capa Alava.
