Scientific Purpose/Goals: The proposed plan will use remote sensing techniques and targeted in-situ observations to monitor the post-restoration evolution of beaches, dunes, vegetative cover, and sediment budgets at beach and dune restoration sites specified in the RFP. We will use these data to evaluate if/how restoration projects improved ecological outcomes and decreased storm vulnerability relative to unaltered environments, thereby providing input necessary for estimating cost-effectiveness. The work as part of this field activity will focus on in-situ monitoring of sediment transport and water-quality in creeks within two of the restored marsh/dune sites.
