    Numerous proactive shore communities along New Jersey's coast have recognized the value of monitoring their beaches to enhance storm protection, aesthetics and tourism, and have requested additional, closer spaced profile sites that are surveyed four times a year (once each season). This higher density data provides coastal zone managers with more information to better manage their beaches and dunes.
