Shoreline Resilience and Inlet Management

Principal Investigators

Steve Elgar, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Britt Raubenheimer, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution


The PIs will use existing observations and new model simulations to determine the causes of beach recovery after storms or inlet openings, and to develop breaching strategies that optimize exchange between coastal ponds and the ocean for a range of ponds and barrier spits, as well as a range of wind, tidal, and wave conditions.
