High Island High School

An eighth school joined THSCMP during the 2015–2016 academic year. High Island High School students collected data from three sites on Bolivar Peninsula. Two of the monitoring sites are adjacent to Rollover Pass, BOL02 to the west and BOL03 to the east of the Pass (Fig. 1). The third site (HIB01) is seaward of High Island just past the eastern end of Highway 87 (Fig. 1). Future measurements by High Island students will not only show through time at each of these location, but also impacts due to Rollover Pass. Through time, data collected from Bolivar Peninsula Island will help scientists better understand the relationship between coastal processes, beach morphology, and shoreline change.
