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.
ChantSafe Program Explained
ChantSafe is being introduced to an entire new group of students at Coastal Carolina University. The program, which was launched in Fall 2019, consists of safety information and crisis instructions delivered through a mobile-optimized website. The program wasn't fully utilized for much of its first year of existence due to the pandemic. ChantSafe is available for all students and can be accessed at coastal.edu/chantsafe.
