Speaker: Dr. Brittany Bruder
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) developed a system that quickly monitors the state of coastal environments by providing real-time quantitative imagery and engineering data. Previous methods were often costly, time consuming, and could be challenging during storm events when monitoring is needed most. The mini-Argus system provides high-resolution remote video imaging as a quantitative tool for collecting coastal monitoring data efficiently and cost effectively. This presentation includes the results of using the system at three project locations: Duck, North Carolina; New Smyrna Beach, Florida; and Sunset Beach, Hawai‘i.
