  • Students setting up beach survey equipment

    Assateague is a young, dynamic landform, changed constantly by wind and water.  During this STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)program student teams use professional survey equipment to plot the topography of the beach, collect elevation data and graph their findings. Students collect wind and ocean current data and model island roll over. Students also assess and analyze sea level rise engineering alternatives and beach replenishment projects for cost/benefit and sustainability.
