Mapping Cape Cod National Seashore using unmanned aerial systems

The USGS conducted UAS flights to map the Nauset Marsh and Coast Guard Beach areas of Cape Cod National Seashore on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. These are the first authorized UAS flights in the northeast region of the national park system, and were performed under a research permit according to FAA and DOI regulations.

Sea-level rise effects vary in geomorphology and ecology

The effects of sea-level rise will vary by differences in the geomorphology and ecology of the landscape.  Images show marsh (top left) rocky coast (top right), barrier beach (bottom left), and coastal bluff (bottom right)

Special Delivery

Sandy Brosnahan transporting a weather buoy into the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center’s operational facility in preparation for deployment. This buoy was one of 6 deployed to measure wind speed, direction, pressure, and temperature off the coast of Fire Island, NY. Paired with each weather buoy was a subsurface tripod measuring surface waves, pressure, current
