The southwestern half of Onslow Beach, NC is starved of sand. Using a side-scan sonar, we imaged peat and organic-rich sediment at the seafloor just seaward from where the waves start to break. Offshore from that, Miocene rock is imaged … Continue reading
Sea-level anomalies are periods greater than 2 weeks when the water level at the beach is high. They are not necessarily related to storm surge or sea-level rise, rather they are forced by changes in ocean currents. On the US … Continue reading
We completed the restoration project after constructing reefs with 3,500 bushels of shell and planting 2,000 bundles of marsh grass. It took 2.5 days with 15 people working, including students, technicians, summer researchers, and faculty. I’m really pleased with the … Continue reading
The project involves planting a saltmarsh and an oyster reef. The first step was applying for a CAMA permit because we need to distribute oyster-shell cultch near the shoreline. We anticipate that oyster larvae will settle on the shell and a … Continue reading
Why does the IMS shoreline need to be restored? Because… 1) It currently looks like this: 2) We are supposed to be stewards of the coast and we are not setting a good example with our rip-rap revetment. 3) … Continue reading
Inter-tidal reefs grow so quickly, they should be able to keep up with any future rate of sea-level rise. That’s good news because in the lower parts of estuaries oyster reefs need to maintain an intertidal elevation to thrive and … Continue reading
Why is Ethan so happy? Well, he just published a new paper in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms entitled, “Evaluating proxies for estimating subaerial beach volume change across increasing time scales and various morphologies“. In the paper, Ethan critically evaluates … Continue reading
In the past we have relied on aerial photography when measuring the morphology of washover fans. These fans are constantly changing shape, but we aren’t able to document these changes because images taken from a plane are only collected every couple … Continue reading
Bayhead deltas are located where rivers flow into estuaries. They have broad low-elevation plains that are sensitive to small increases in the rate of sea-level rise. In the past, when sea level was rising at a rate of 1 m … Continue reading
Ethan and Justin created SciREN, the Scientific Research and Education Network, to establish a forum through which scientists can efficiently provide teachers scientific resources for the classroom. The first event was held at the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium in April … Continue reading
