Hurricane Lee coastal response

Detailed Description

USGS scientists from the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC) also installed pressure sensors at four sites along the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, including Sandwich Marsh tidal creek in Sandwich, Head of the Meadow Beach in Truro, Marconi Beach in Wellfleet, and Nauset Light Beach in Eastham to measure storm surge and flooding during Hurricane Lee. This fieldwork was coordinated with the Town of Sandwich and the National Park Service, Cape Cod National Seashore.
