Figure 3. This map shows the shoreline change along the seaward edge of the dunes from November 3, 2006 (blue line) to just after the Patriots' Day Storm on April 19, 2007 (green line). Overall, the shoreline erosion or recession was quite even along the length of the frontal dune at Willard Beach. The black lines across the beach show the locations of transects used to measure vertical beach changes each month by Tom Long and a team of students from Southern Maine Community College.
