Head of the Meadow Beach video camera 1 bright image

Detailed Description

Two video cameras are mounted on a bluff near Head of the Meadow Beach, Cape Cod National Seashore, North Truro, MA. One camera looks directly offshore (north east), and the second looks alongshore (north-northeast). A “bright” image shows the brightest pixel values throughout the video, useful for identifying the position of maximum wave run-up on the beach, position of all breaking waves, and sea-state. Today’s most recent image from camera 1, pointing alongshore, is shown here. Please note that it takes 10 minutes for the images to be posted once they are collected by the camera. (Larger Version)
