Geophysical Study of the Inner Shelf in the Vicinity of Stono Inlet South Carolina

CCU and the United States Army Corps of Engineers have established an MOU outlining mutual interest and agreement to collaborate (AGREEMENT NUMBER W912HP-15-2-0001). The Wilmington and Charleston Districts have designated a series of areas for a planning vibracoring campaign in the summer of 2015. Two areas identified for vibracoring were recommended from the CCU/USGS 2002 study (Schwab, Gayes and Denny, 002). Two additional areas have been identified by the Corps where comprehensive geophysical survey could greatly aid their efforts to find suitable sand resources for upcoming renourishment of Folly Beach, South Carolina.

CCU will utilize this survey and interpretation in the direct training of a graduate student who is interested in inner shelf geologic framework and working with similar data sets from other locations along the SC coast.
