Beach-Dune Performance Assessment of New Jersey Beach Profile Network Sites
Stockton University Coastal Research Center (CRC) has initiated a post-storm survey and assessment of the New Jersey shoreline in response to severe beach erosion resulting from the impact and landfall of Hurricane Sandy. Nearly all of the 105 New Jersey Beach Profile Network(NJBPN) sites were surveyed immediately after the storm to provide accurate sand volume losses to New Jersey's beach's. Pre-existing NJBPN monitoring sites were used to provide an accurate comparison and assessment of storm related shoreline and beach volume changes. Using the data from those sites surveyed for fall 2012 NJBPN or spring 2012 provides a good baseline for damages that occurred during the hurricane.
