Wilmington Harbor Monitoring Program Results Page
This page presents results we know of that have benefited from the Wilmington Harbor Monitoring Program. Many of the engineering and science partnerships have resulted from the Wilmington District's commitment to this long-term program. We encourage use of the data and only ask that you make appropriate credits as specified on the description page of this web site. Although these results are not peer-reviewed, it provides quick access to your work, which we hope will generate feedback and comments. Our goal is to better understand the processes in Long Bay and the response of the coast.
