About this project
Hurricanes can have devastating impacts to beaches. This project involved assessing the beach erosion and how much sand was lost after Hurricane Isabel hit the Outer Banks in North Carolina. These beach assessments conducted immediately after the hurricane was used by the communities and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to identify where beaches need to be rebuilt and the estimated cost.
Who benefits from this project, and how?
Anyone who enjoys going to the beaches in the North Carolina Outer Banks!
