Taking PPE to a whole new level

Detailed Description

You have to be able to have a little fun when in the field. A colleague from the Washington State Department of Ecology hams it up while prepping for a beach survey with scientists from the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center. The multi-agency surveys define sediment transport pathways and record coastal changes at the mouth of the Columbia River, where dams, stone jetties, navigation channels, and changes in upstream land use affect the sediment supply to beaches.
