Partnership with East Carolina University for BOEM Coastal Restoration Research

Geodynamics has partnered with East Carolina University and the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management for research to support coastal resiliency in the state. In a two-year cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the team will evaluate the long-term effects of Hurricane Sandy and look for ways to protect the coastline in the future.

Goals of the research project include synthesizing existing geological and geophysical data offshore of NC, evaluating available sand resources based on existing information, and identifying gaps and prioritizing areas for future geologic and geophysical surveys.
