Document Description
This project consists of an experiment conducted by Scripps Institute of Oceanography to set sensors into the high tide area of Cardiff State Beach to develop field validated, site specific inundation models for use in providing real time warnings of wave and tide induced coastal inundation. These models if successful would assist public safety agencies. The proposed experiment would be a 1.5 km stretch of Cardiff State Beach between South Cardiff State Beach and the San Elijo Lagoon Inlet. Sensors will be buried at a depth less than 4' utilizing fluidizing an area with water jets or by excavation with a small backhoe or auger attachment. DPR-approved standard project requirements have been incorporated into this project. A copy of these requirements may be obtained by submitting a request to the project Environmental Coordinator listed below.
