Public access to Broadkill Beach relies on dune crossovers that are vulnerable to erosion during storms due to the proximity of the dune toe to the Bay. CoastSnap contributors help environmental managers to gather “real-time” data on the condition of the beach and add to the existing datasets (optical, elevation, morphological) at this site to enable investigations of long-term shoreline change here.
