Location 6: Photo-pair shows Irma caused overwash, beach erosion, FL

Detailed Description

Location 6: The beach near Mayport illustrates the processes of overwash and dune erosion due to Hurricane Irma. Lower elevation dunes, roads, and walkways overwashed due to high surge and waves while the higher elevation dunes show scarping indicative of dune erosion. Predicted probabilities of dune erosion and overwash were 97% and 57% for this location. The predicted probability of coastal change is calculated for every 1 kilometer of coast and does not resolve small areas of overwash such as walkovers and roadways.
