Last week Hurricane Dorian impacted North Carolina. In collaboration with the MARS Lab at Duke University, including Justin Ridge, we examined how the storm affected the morphology of Bird Shoal. Before the storm came by, we deployed a camera trap and imaged the island with an eBee drone. Above is an example of what it was like on the island during the Hurricane. The worst of the storm hit during the night and could not be recorded. Bird Shoal provides the town of Beaufort protection from storm waves.

Looking for new lab mates
I’m looking for new graduate students to join the Rodriguez Lab. If you are interested in coastal science including sedimentology, geomorphology, and/or ecology look through this website to see if what we do is compatible with your interests. We can also team up with other faculty at UNC to provide additional expertise to your project.
