Andrew Ashton (blue cap, WHOI Geology and Geophysics Department) and Guest Student Nick Magliocca (red cap, Duke University) trek through the sand in the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve on Cape Cod, Mass. in July, 2008. Using Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) they searched for below-the-surface deposits left by past storms, to investigate how barrier beaches respond to changes in storminess and sea level. As a WHOI Summer Student Fellow, Delman spent the summer collecting and analyzing data and developing a model of long-term barrier-beach evolution.
