GPS Coordinates for Survey Location43.680083, -70.167861
PredictionsWe thought that the erosion would get worse over time because we are seeing more king tides.
OutcomesWe found that erosion was less over the years because they put up a snow fence before 2003. Although some major storms effected erosion, the snow fence helped a lot.
