Field Activity 2016-365-FA

Identifier 2016-365-FA
Alternate names 16LGC01 = Team 1 (DeWitt/Farmer) 16LGC02 = Team 2 (Kelso/Wilcox)​
Purpose Three teams will cover the eastern shoreline for Lidar ground control support. Team #1 (SPCMSC) will cover the Florida coastline (~320 miles and 7 sites). Team #2(SPCMSC)will cover Georgia and South Carolina coastline (~300 miles and 7 sites). Team #3 (WHCMSC) will cover the North Carolina and Virginia Coastline (~400 miles and 9 sites).
Location Hutchinson Island (FL) to VA/MD border. 23 sites are spaced out along the coastline at ~50 mile increments.
Summary 16LGC01 Collection Summary Total Sites = 7 Total GCP = 161 points Total Survey wheel - 15,174 meters Total Trenches = 13 Total Sediment samples from trenches = 33 Total Sediment cores = 5 (Canaveral only) Total SfM locations = 34​
Info derived 1) GPS ground control point data collection in support of Lidar. 2) Mapping perimeter extent of selected overwash areas identified in satellite imagery. 3) Measure overwash deposit thickness and sediment composition (sampling). 4) Description notes and photographs.
Comments Contacts for GCP questions should be directed to Chris Reich, Xan Fredericks, or Cheryl Hapke. Contacts for overwash questions should be directed to Chris Smith. The starting and ending points for the SPCMS teams will be the St. Petersburg office. The WHCMSC will have their own FAN number. Stay overs for the teams will be in the local city or town as dictated by the location of the planned ground control locations.
