Book excerpt: Since 1871 the Cape Hatteras lighthouse has been a welcome sight for sailors entering the treacherous region off North Carolina's Outer Banks known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. At 208 feet high, it is the tallest lighthouse in the country and one of the state's most famous landmarks. Through the years, it has withstood the ravages of both humans and nature, weathering numerous violent storms and two wars. But perhaps the gravest threat the structure faced in recent history was the erosion of several hundred yards of beach that once stood between it and the ocean. As powerful tides and rising sea levels increasingly endangered the lighthouse's future, North Carolinians debated fiercely over how best to save it, eventually deciding on a controversial plan to move the beacon inland to safety. First published by UNC Press in 1991, this book tells the story of the noble lighthouse from its earliest history to the present day. In this new edition, Dawson Carr details the recent relocation of the treasured landmark. For now, it seems, North Carolinians have succeeded in protecting their lighthouse, as it has protected them for over a century.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, standing 198.49 feet, is the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States. From 1803, when the first Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was built, to today, it cast its light over the waters off the Outer Banks of North Carolina, also called the "Graveyard of the Atlantic." Its history--stretching from Augustin-Jean Fresnel's lens laboratory in France to the beaches of Hatteras Island where the lighthouse keepers labored--includes war, shipwrecks, hurricanes, and cutting-edge technology. Due to politics, funding, and its precarious location, it took great effort to erect and protect a lighthouse built on a barrier island. The supporters and caretakers were many, including Alexander Hamilton in the 1700s and children donating coins to a statewide preservation campaign in 1982. In the 21st century, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse continues to send out its beam to mariners.

Download Generalized Monitoring of 'SEASCAPE' Installation at Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, North Carolina PDF by James William Forman Full Free and published by . This book was released on 1986 with total page 66 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This report documents a monitoring program to assess the effectiveness of SEASCAPE, an artificial seaweed, for temporarily stabilizing the shoreline fronting the lighthouse at Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The monitoring program consisted of aerial photography, beach profile surveys, reconnaissance dives, and ground photography. Although consideration accretion ocurred during the monitoring period, the accumulation was the result of a general build up of the beach which averaged 25 ft over the 6.1-mile study area. There was no conclusive evidence to link the buildup to the 5,000 ft of SEASCAPE which was deployed in October and November, 1982. Moreover, it was not possible to attribute burial of the SEASCAPE to the action of the artificial seaweed versus burial by normal wave-driven migration of sand. The units themselves were found to deteriorate and to fragment with whole units and parts of units washing up on the beach. Keywords: Evaluation and hydrodynamics of offshore structures; Seascape(Artificial seaweed), Lighthouse protection, Sediment transport; Coastal engineering.
