Field Activity 2016-359-FA

Identifier 2016-359-FA
Purpose Site visit to investigate overwash deposits as a result of Hurricane Matthew. Goals are to collect beach profiles, map overwash deposits, photograph impacts to the environment from the storm, collect sediment samples and cores of overwash deposits.
Location Matanzas Inlet to Canaveral National Seashore
Summary Sediment samples and photographs were collected at each site.
Info derived Overwash deposits at select sites mapped for areal coverage, cores or trenches dug to determine thickness of overwash, and eventual volumetric calculations of overwash deposits made. Photographic and visual information collected to develop a more robust sampling strategy in the near future.
