ERDC researchers engage citizen scientists in data collection
A quarter lies in the sand on Jones Beach State Park in New York, June 5, 2021. Researchers from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, along with the U.S. Geological Service, Marda Science and James Madison University, are engaging citizen scientists in a national SandSnap initiative to amass a spatial and temporally varying nationwide beach grain size database by taking photos of any size U.S. coin on the beach and uploading the image to a web application for grain size analysis.
