Information Specialist(s): Ellyn Montgomery
Data Type(s): Imagery: Photo, Location-Elevation: Benchmarks, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Measure changes in Sandwich Beach
Start Port/Location: Sandwich, MA
End Port/Location: Sandwich, MA
Start Date: 2015-12-21
End Date: 2016-01-20
Equipment Used: Bottom platform, 35 mm camera, RTK, Spectra Precision SP80, Sample containers
Information to be Derived: Beach morphology, wave heights, tidal elevations
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: This activity encompasses a lot of trips to the site to monitor changes in the beach. Pairs of pressure sensors were deployed during storms to capture overwash events.
