Northern-Dare-County

Northern Dare County, North Carolina (Vibracore Sampling)

AVS project objectives were to establish geotechnical characteristics of borrow sources offshore northern Dare County for beach nourishment operations for the towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills in North Carolina. Vibracore sampling was performed in three areas (Area S1-4, A and B) in the Atlantic Ocean, two of which were located in federal waters requiring that BOEM permit conditions be met. The survey areas were approximately 55 to 75 miles from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and 8 to 28 miles from Oregon Inlet. Based on historical bathymetry from the National Ocean Service and recent reconnaissance investigations conducted by the client, vibracore sampling was anticipated to be conducted in water depths ranging from 40 feet to 70 feet.
