Hey All! The Coastal Monitoring & Analysis Program (CMAP) at the Department of Ecology has an article in this month’s issue of xyHt, a magazine for professional surveyors and those who work in geospatial disciplines. For those of you who are not already familiar, CMAP conducts quarterly beach topography surveys throughout the southwest Washington coast to monitor erosion and changes in beach elevation. CMAP also performs surveys around the Puget Sound to map and monitor beaches and bluffs. The xyHt article features their research vessel, the R/V George Davidson, and highlights the innovative dual-mount multibeam sonars they use for extreme shallow-water mapping to track morphologic change along the coast. The article is available online at: http://www.xyht.com/hydromarine/dual-head-mapping/
