Description The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Coastal and Marine Geology Program in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, is leading an effort to understand the regional sediment dynamics along the coastline of North and South Carolina. As part of the mulit-disciplinary Carolinas Coastal Change Processes Project, we are examining the interactions between oceanographic forcing, geologic conditions, and the resulting changes to topography in the inner shelf, nearshore, and subaerial beach regions. This dataset presents data from an oceanographic field study from January - May 2009 to investigate processes that control the dynamics of sediment transport at Diamond Shoals, NC.
