Scientist Log #5: Benchmarking

Written on: February 10th, 2012 in NERRResearch

February 10, 2012

Over the past few weeks, we have been busy installing benchmarks throughout Kent County.  We are not finding benches and marking them.  Benchmarks  are monuments scattered throughout the United States that are used for surveys in order to ensure accurate measurements for foundations of houses, roads, and other construction projects.  Benchmarks are also used to verify elevations within a project or to survey unknown points.  The benchmarks we are installing are either replacing old ones that have been destroyed or adding new ones to areas that lack coverage.  These new benchmarks will eventually be used by other surveyors throughout Delaware.
