Grand Strand Renourishment Project: Beach, Nearshore Reef and Borrow Site Monitoring

The Burroughs & Chapin Center for Marine and Wetland Studies has developed partnerships with local, state, and federal resource management agencies to conduct applied beach and nearshore research and monitoring projects with the goal of providing sound, scientific information to decision makers. Funding partners include the City of North Myrtle Beach, Horry County, the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control-Ocean of Coastal Resource Management (SCDHEC-OCRM). Data categories include beach and nearshore monitoring (beach profiles, shoreline surveys), mapping of borrow sites (bathymetry, side scan sonar), and photography (aerial photos, beach cameras). The objectives of this project are to:

  1. Document and quantify physical changes throughout the beach and nearshore regions of the Grand Strand associated with beach nourishment,
  2. Document and quantify physical changes at the three borrow sites associated with nourishment, and
  3. Document impacts to nearshore index reefs associated with beach nourishment.
