  Smart Reef Deployment Charleston

Coastal Carolina University has been instrumental in developing a number of smart reefs along the South Carolina coast. The latest deployment of the reef material was on July 30, 2022, when blocks for the smart reefs were dropped off the shores of North Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, and Charleston.

As the program advances, the artificial reefs are being designed to look more like natural reefs. Instrumentation is being connected to the reefs, which provides data on a variety of water, wind, and wave measurements. It’s an effort to give a better picture of what is happening through the coastal zone, in hopes of improving forecasting and modeling.
