Identifier 2021-031-FA
Alternate names Tropical Storm Henri CoastCam Surveys
Purpose To collect pre and post storm profile data for Hurricane/Tropical Storm Henri to compare to total water level predictions and to observe changes in front of the CoastCams deployed at Head of the Meadow and Marconi Beach
Location USA, Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Cape Cod National Seashore, Wellfleet, Truro, Head of the Meadow Beach, Marconi Beach
Summary Pre-Henri data was collected on 8/20 at low tide at Head of the Meadow Beach (J. Over) and at Marconi Beach (C. Sherwood). Due to Friday crowds and last minute planning the CORS network was used which did not give good data at Marconi and some usable data at HOM. Post Storm data was collected by J. Over at HOM on 8/24 at the evening low tide with a base station. A complete survey was done there. Data was post-processed on 8/26.
Info derived Elevation of bluff and beach at low tide pre and post storm.
Comments Will be two days, post storm collection will depend on weather.
