Photographs

README: The ground level and aerial photographs were taken in November of 2002 and January of 2003, well after the study period had ended and the piezometers and data loggers had been removed.  Visible in the photographs are the support structures remaining for the individual stations along the transects.  The Digital Orthophoto Quarter-Quad (DOQQ) image was provided by the North Inlet–Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.  Start and end points for each transect were plotted on the DOQQ map using GPS coordinates (also taken in November of 2002) and ArcMap software.
