Beach Reports

Stephen Dickenson, PhD of Maine Geological Survey has been keeping track of Wells Beach via their citizen volunteers that measure beach profiles once a month. Volunteers send photos and measure the beach elevations near Casino Point (WE02) and south of the south jetty (WE03) and at Laudholm Beach. Attached are some graphs showing the height of the beach. Thanks to collaboration and coordination with John Cannon at the National Weather Service in Gray, some of the teams are measuring before and after major storms if they can muster a team. The below pictures tell the story and are summarized below.
