Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: many aerial images were obtained from each of 3 sites (Braddock Bay, Sodus Bay, Chimney Bluffs), with accompanying surveyed CGPs and transect locations.

Staff: Jonathan Borden, Sandra Brosnahan, Ellyn Montgomery

Affiliate Staff:

Notes: Plan to map shoreline at 3 sites, with boat operations help from collaborators from Water.

To assist FEMA in assessment of lake Ontario flooding, many aerial images were collected over 5 days at 3 sites:
Braddock Bay NY 7/10-12
Sodus Bay & Lake Bluffs 7/12-15
Chimney Bluffs 7/15

GCPs transects were also surveyed at each location

Location:

South shore of Lake Ontario, United States, New York
