Description:
Abstract:
In 1995, Assateague Island NS initiated a long-term program to begin monitoring key aspects of island geomorphology. One of the goals of this program was the documentation of cross-island beach profile elevations on a biannual basis in order to describe and evaluate trends in island topographic relief and storm-driven change. For this purpose a profile network baseline was established by Taylor, Wisemann and Taylor in 1993, and expanded by NPS personnel in 1995. Individual profile lines were numbered in consecutive order from north to south and prefaced in text by GPS or NPS, denoting whether the baseline monument was established by Taylor, Wisemann, Taylor, or NPS, respectively. Spacing between GPS monuments is 2.0 Km, with NPS monuments located approximately midway between GPS monuments. The result is a profile line density of 1 Km along the northern 10 Km of Assateague Island (commonly referred to as the "North End"), and a 2 Km density for the remainder of the island. This file marks the location of the GPS and NPS monuments.
Purpose:
Documentation of cross-island beach profile elevations on a biannual basis in order to describe and evaluate trends in island topographic relief and storm-driven change.
