We used Ground Penetrating Radar to determine the internal structure of four active backbarrier eolian dunes along the barrier island coast of North Carolina and Virginia. The purpose of the project was to determine the history and possible causes of dune activity and dune stabilization in this region to predict the future of these dunes.
