Shoreline Erosion of Lake Michigan at Carthage College
The study was to examine the shoreline of Lake Michigan at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The purpose of this study was to determine if rip rap that's located along the shore helps preventing erosion. The majority of the information came from the aerial photos of 1974, 1987, and 2000. The photos helped show where the shoreline was at that particular moment. The years were picked mostly because of availability, but also to deal with pre and post rip rap conditions. I hypothesized that the use of rip rap will decrease the rate of erosion along the shore. My hypothesis turns out to be true. The part of campus that needs to be watched at the moment is the southern part of campus where it transitions into more of a sand beach than rock.
