Shoreline Monitoring at NASA’s Wallops Island Flight Facility

Geodynamics has been awarded a multi-year monitoring project at the NASA Wallops Island Flight Facility.  The effort will include biannual beach profiles of the shoreline surrounding the installation on Wallops and Assateague Islands.  These beach profiles include RTK-GPS topographic portions and hydrographic data collected with motion-corrected singlebeam sonar.   These repetitive surveys will provide important information about coastal change and erosion, supporting coastal engineers at Moffatt & Nichol.  In addition to the seamless topo-bathy beach profiles, the project also includes initial aerial surveys to collect LiDAR and orthoimagery.
