Sand Replenishment Monitoring Project ~ Sandbridge

Sand Replenishment Monitoring Project ~ Sandbridge


Since the fall of 1984, Geology 105 and Oceanography 112 students at TCC have been conducting their class field trips to Little Island Park in Virginia Beach. The lab projects give our students experience in making field observations, data reduction, and interpretation. Getting our students out of the more traditional classroom/lab setting has proven to be an effective way of teaching these processes.

When the sand replenishment project started in the Sandbridge area in May 1998, we felt it would be a good opportunity to study the effects of additional sand input in Little Island Park. We anticipate this to be an on-going monitoring project for a minimum of 5 years.



The sketches and profiles are a little rough but please bear with Eventually they will be drafted.

Hurricane Bonnie data is also shown on the profiles
