Surge, wave gauges deployed for Hurricane Isaac research

Wave gauge

As part of an ongoing storm surge and wave monitoring project for Dauphin Island, Ala., scientists recently deployed five surge/wave gauges and an atmospheric pressure gauge to record the effects of Hurricane Isaac as it passes through the area.

The gauges were deployed early Monday morning (8/27/2012) with the help of University of South Alabama Assistant Professor Bret Webb and civil engineering graduate students Richard Allen and Chris Marr. Read more about this Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant research project.
