In this project, the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies will characterize and quantify sediment flux within the littoral cells of Cape Cod Bay from the Truro-Wellfleet shoreline to Jeremy Point. The project seeks to gain an understanding of historic conditions and predict future changes to the position, shape and extent of the shoreline in this region. Shoreline erosion is a serious issue of concern on Cape Cod and the information obtained will inform management decisions relating to climate change, protection of natural habitats and resources, and protection and management of present and future infrastructure.
