Ready for overwash
Today a massive effort of the team. We rebuild the scaffold frame (some 2.5 m poles were practically covered and other were practically exposed); moved 15 bed-level sensors from the bottom of the beach to the top and back of the barrier; took out all Vectrino II and sheetflow probes; moved the three swash rigs to the back of the barrier and morphed them into 4 overwash rigs; moved back the video trolley and installed all the video ground control points; reconfigured the 2 vertical pressure sensor arrays into a cross-barrier pressure sensor array; and surveyed all new instrument positions in. The Deltaflume team had the wave paddle repaired very conveniently while we were adjusting our rigs. Bring on the overwash!
