Cross-shore position and elevation for beach after Dennis

Detailed Description

Graph of cross-shore position and elevation for beach before and after Hurricane Dennis (1999). At this location, wave runup was confined to the beach. The beach eroded but the dune was untouched. Most of the eroded sand returned to the beach in the weeks to months following Hurricane Dennis (1999).
