Port Heiden Erosion Monitoring

Time-lapse cameras were installed in 2016 to monitor the shorelines fronting Meshik, the old village site for Port Heiden. Funding to install equipment was provided by Alaska Sea Grant and Alaska Ocean Observing System. The install was a collaboration between DGGS, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Bristol Bay Native Association, and Alaska Sea Grant.
