UNCW students and professors team up to study the N.C Coast!

A team of students and professors, including Dr. Lawerence Cahoon and Dr. Thomas E. Lankford from the Department of Biology and Marine Biology, have received $6,000 from the N.C Sea Grant to study six beaches along the North Carolina coastline!
The research, requested by the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, will be used to provide data on our coastal environment under normal, natural conditions, as a basis for future comparison if oil from the spill in the Gulf of Mexico, or from anywhere else, were ever to reach our shores.
