Description The data in this part of the release contains GPS data as reference marks, walking surveys, and location data of deployed beach instrumentation on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge (PINWR) at the USGS DUring Nearshore Event eXperiment (DUNEX) site and at Basnight Bridge (BB), NC. DUNEX is a multi-agency, academic, and non-governmental organization collaborative community experiment designed to study nearshore coastal processes during storm events. USGS participation in DUNEX will contribute new measurements and models that will increase our understanding of storm impacts to coastal environments, including hazards to humans and infrastructure and changes in landscape and natural habitats. Collected data are part of field activity 2021-029-FA and donated data 2020-024-DD. During November 2020, April, September, and October 2021, USGS and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) scientists conducted multiple field surveys to collect a topobathy elevation time series. Two new reference marks were established in the Pea Island Boat Ramp parking lot to establish ground control for the duration of the project. GPS data were collected using real time kinematic (RTK) and post-processing kinematic (PPK) – satellite navigation system (GNSS) receivers. [More]
