The goal, locations, and a few pictures of the wave gauge deployment are included below.
One goal of this deployment is to collect data about how the waves and storm surge are attenuated across the barrier islands. So Spencer and Johnathan deployed the wave gauges in transects, starting at the beach and then extending across the island and toward the waterway or sound. They deployed 10 gauges in three transects, with locations shown below:
The data collected from these gauges will be combined with a larger deployment from the USGS. Please see the following pictures from Spencer and Johnathan’s deployment:
Thank you to Andrew Kennedy (University of Notre Dame) for providing the wave gauges, and thank you to Spencer Rogers for providing the opportunity for Johnathan. Stay tuned for the post-storm recovery of the gauges!
