USGS Providing Lidar Data to Analyze Dune Vulnerability at Cape Canaveral
Between the backdrop of NASA's space shuttle "Endeavour" and trails of
nesting sea turtles scattered across the beach, eroding sand dunes protect
NASA's infrastructure from storms while supporting a rich coastal habitat.
On May 28, 2009, USGS collaborators Wayne Wright, Richard Mitchell, Dale
Fowler, BJ Reynolds, David Thompson, Kara Doran, Katy Serafin teamed up with
University of Florida's Rich MacKenzie to survey the dunes using
Experimental Advanced Airborne Lidar system. The Lidar topographic and
bathymetric data are being used to support a dune vulnerability study that
is documenting changes in the beach due to recent storms. This information
can help predict changes due to future storms and will be used by NASA and
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to manage the coast in a way that balances
the needs of the space program and the wildlife at Cape Canaveral.
