Background: A teleconference was held on July 18, 2013 to discuss ideas and preliminary analysis of a June 13, 2013 tsunami event that impacted the coast of New England. A NOAA DART buoy was triggered by the event, which drew the attention of a diverse group of researchers who initiated efforts to identify what caused waves and currents that impacted a number of bays and estuaries. The event, which occurred during daylight hours attracted widespread attention. Several media reports (including coverage by NPR) were released focused on local impacts including several people being swept off a breakwater at Barnegat Light NJ, some damage to boat moorings, and minor inundation.
