WHOI scientists are working with Reserve staff, using a small hobby-plane equipped with GPS and camera to take high-resolution photos of the salt marsh and shore at South Cape Beach. These photos are useful for public presentations, but more importantly can map change over time, damage from storms, results of controlled burns, animal populations (such as seals), etc. TOTE 2012- jcm 005IMG_6933
