Equipment Used
A beach and nearshore topographic survey consisting of one shore-normal profile 
and one shore-parallel line (wet/dry line) was conducted. The profile was 
extended offshore into the surf zone utilizing a swimming rodman.
Field Procedure:
  Two highway signs delineate the profile at Scott Creek.
  The total station was set up just south of the profile.
  The SECO level rods, in conjunction with the level-rod support tripods
  were placed on the control points and pointed towards the total station.
  Program 10 (site setup) was performed on the total station
  Program 20 (station establishment) was performed on the total station
  using option "Unknown Station Location"
  Control Points: 10101, 10104, 10102, and 10103 were surveyed
  (Fast Standard mode)
  Profile was surveyed using the EXP3 stadia rod (Tracking mode)
  The Wet/Dry line was surveyed using the EXP3 stadia rod (Tracking mode)
  Gretchen Luepke sketched the beach.
  Thomas E. Reiss photographed the area.

  Field Observations:
    Scott Creek continues to flow into the ocean to the north. Beach cusps 
  Surf conditions too rough to go very far offshore.
