A meeting was convened on April 29-30, 2008, at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Woods Hole Science Center in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, to plan science objectives for the USGS Carolinas Coastal Change Processes Project. The meeting was attended by about 15 scientists from several organizations, including George Voulgaris from the University of South Carolina; Ruoying He from the University of North Carolina; Lynn Leonard from the University of North Carolina Wilmington; Jesse McNinch from the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; Kevin Haas from Georgia Tech Savannah; Dave Thompson from the USGS Florida Integrated Science Center office in St. Petersburg; and John Warner, Rob Thieler, Jeff List, Brad Butman, Chris Sherwood, Rich Signell, Brandy Armstrong, Marinna Martini, and Ellyn Montgomery from the USGS Woods Hole Science Center.

Several attendees gave presentations related to current research activities in the study area, which focuses on the Outer Banks and cuspate forelands of North and South Carolina. The Carolinas project theme is to investigate the interactions of shoreline, nearshore, and offshore sediment-transport processes driving coastal change in the Carolinas by using geophysical surveys, oceanographic studies, and predictive models. The meeting was held in the USGS Woods Hole Science Center's new Tilley Conference Room, which includes a multimedia center that allowed outside investigators to log in via WebEx and presenters to display concurrent multiple images on the plasma screen and overhead projector system. The well-equipped meeting center facilitated the scientists' development of an integrated science plan to address issues of coastal-change hazards.
