What a first day on the water in North Carolina! Red carpet treatment from RV Seahawk and CMS dive team. This scoping adventure was the official start of our collaboration with BOEM to study Frying Pan Shoals. We have deployed a MOSTLY empty test lander and sand-screwed a few driveway posts. What? Yup, you have heard of driveway poles to mark the snow, here we hope to mark sand accretion or erosion at 3, 8, and 12 km from shore!
