Coastal Carolina Project 2002 - Kitty Hawk


Dare County
East Carolina University

The USGS Woods Hole Field Center, the State of North Carolina, and university researchers are mapping the regional sedimentary framework of the inner shelf of northern North Carolina to understand recent coastal processes, including erosion and the impacts of shoreline change. The USGS Water Resources Discipline of North Carolina installed piezometers in of the four test holes drilled by the Coastal and Marine Geology Program near Kitty Hawk in Dare County. These wells will be used to monitor ground water fluctuations and, when paired with additional data, could be used to monitor change detection.
