Concurrent Indoor & Outdoor Experiences
VIMS Offshore Breakwaters and Beach Nourishment Case Study
Bruce Pfirrmann DCR-SEAS & [[v|milligan,Donna Milligan]], VIMS Shoreline Studies Program
This case study also illustrated how a historically armored (bulkhead) shoreline was converted to a nature-based feature & how submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) can affect project designs.

VIMS Teaching Marsh Case Study
[[v|christine,Christine Tombleson]] & [[v|julieb,Julie Bradshaw]], VIMS-CCRM
Preferred features in living shoreline tidal marshes were demonstrated at the Teaching Marsh, including:
Living Shorelines: Marshes & Oysters Story Map
[[v|kory,Kory Angstadt]], VIMS-CCRM
How a Mavic Pro drone is being used for CCRM shoreline and wetlands research was demonstrated, including the steps required to create a flight plan, capture still and video images, collect elevation data, and the process of converting all of the collected images and data into meaningful analyses.
Hands-On Shoreline Management Tools
[[v|molly,Molly Mitchell]] & [[v|tamia,Tamia Rudnicky]], VIMS-CCRM
This station provided an opportunity to learn about and practice using GIS mapping tools at individual computer stations. After a short introduction to various tools, CCRM staff provided guidance and answered questions while users practiced using the tools.
