Field Activity 2021-029-FA

Identifier 2021-029-FA
Alternate names DUNEX Topobathy Surveys
Purpose We propose to collect detailed topobathy measurements spanning the nearshore and beach/dune throughout the storm and recovery period(s) during hurricane season. Observations from this site will provide insight into cross-shore storm processes and impacts, including wave transformation and shoreline water levels, rapid changes in coastal elevations, on/offshore sediment exchanges, and resulting habitat changes. These detailed measurements will provide a more complete understanding of storm impacts and recovery on natural beach/dune systems, which will allow us to validate and improve forecasts of water levels, coastal change, and habitat.
Location Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, Hatteras Island, North Carolina, United States, Atlantic Ocean
Summary DUNEX Pea Island topobathy field work was completed on 10/25/2021. Bathymetry was collected on five different days with the SSV and Yellowfin of WHOI. The heli-kite and Ricoh GRII with plastic ground control points were used to survey eight times. Foot surveys with the SP80 were done on thirteen days. Aeropoints were deployed twice. Two Ricoh GRIIs were broken during field work. Two reference marks were established in the Parking lot of the boat launch on Pea Island.
Info derived Topography, bathymetry, imagery
Comments This FA is part of DUNEX and covers the topography and bathymetry data while 2021-028-FA covers the cross shore array, grain size, and wave data. Topobathy is related to similar data that was collected in the same spot by Peter Traykovski of WHOI in the donated data 2020-024-DD
