Research Project: High Energy Active Margins
CMGP Center: Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
Chief Scientist: Patrick Barnard
Objectives: Monitor changes in beach sand volume and distribution


Field Activity 2017-603-FA
Dates: Jaunary 03 to Jaunary 06
Location: Kauaʻi, Oʻahu
Research Project: Tsunami Hazards, Modeling, and the Sedimentary Record
CMGP Center: Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
