Nuvuk, Alaska web cam

Detailed Description

Two coastal observing video cameras are installed atop a utility pole near the northernmost point of land in the United States, at Nuvuk (Point Barrow), Alaska. The cameras point northwest toward the Arctic Ocean and the boundary between the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. The imagery will be used to observe and quantify coastal processes such as wave run-up, bluff erosion, movement of sandbars and ice floes, and sediment entrainment and transport by ice. This is a snapshot of the beach.
