3D Fieldwork - October 31st - post post-overwash

Again on October 25 and 26, waves reached almost 3 m height, therefore we made another post post-overwash survey. During fieldwork, the waves were still about 1.5 to 2 m height.

Surprisingly, overwash intrusion was smaller than the one reached during previous survey. Is it a result of the beach morphology adjustment to winter oceanographic conditions?

Some profiles developed an erosion bluff at the barrier crest.
