Beach-Dune Performance Assessment of New Jersey Beach Profile Network Sites at Northern Ocean County, New Jersey After Hurricane Sandy

The Richard Stockton College of NJ Coastal Research Center (CRC) has initiated a post-storm survey and assessment of the New Jersey shoreline in response to severe beach erosion resulting from the impact and landfall of Hurricane Sandy. The analysis for the developed portion of the northern Ocean County barrier-spit compares data collected during fall 2012 (mid-September) to data surveyed poststorm on November 8th, 12th, and 19th 2012. This initial report is focused on the impact to northern Ocean Countys dunes and beaches from Hurricane Sandy. The damage details have been organized specific to each municipal segment of the barrier-spit starting in the north at Point Pleasant Beach and ending in the south at Seaside Park.
