Data associated with mapping shoreline position provides baseline information used by scientists, managers, and planners for quantitative assessment of historical trends and prediction of future conditions. Unfortunately, many decisions based on application of this information rely on the assumption that all data and techniques are error-free. This paper provides an overall perspective of shoreline change assessment in light of potential errors associated with shoreline mapping. Proposed… 

SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL CONSIDERATION FOR CALCULATING SHORELINE CHANGE RATES IN THE GREAT LAKES BASIN

Accurate long-term shoreline change rates are required for a wide range of shoreline studies and coastal zone management applications in the Great Lakes Basin. However, the literature on methods,

GEO-SPATIAL TECHNOLOGIES IN SHORELINE ANALYSIS, VARIABILITY AND EROSION

Analysis of shoreline variability and shoreline erosion-accretion trends is fundamental to a broad range of investigations undertaken by coastal scientists, coastal engineers, and coastal managers.

Method for assessing the thematic and positional accuracy of seagrass mapping

Maps showing the density and distribution of seagrasses in Shark Bay, Western Australia, were prepared through interpretation of vertical aerial photographs. The hard‐copy maps were digitized and

Interpretation of Shoreline-Position Data for Coastal Engineering Analysis

Abstract : To provide background information and guidance for interpreting shoreline-position data. Such data are analyzed for assessing historic and recent shoreline change, estimating impacts of

Shoreline Definition and Detection: A Review

Abstract Analysis of shoreline variability and shoreline erosion-accretion trends is fundamental to a broad range of investigations undertaken by coastal scientists, coastal engineers, and coastal

Trends and Variability of Shoreline Position

meters). The result of this unfavorable signal-to-noise ratio is that the underlying long-term rate of erosion can be impossible to determine from even century-long shoreline position records by

Shoreline Position Prediction: Methods and Errors

Beach erosion is ubiquitous along the U. S. East Coast— 80–90% of the beaches are eroding. Federal and state agencies thus expend a great deal of effort to determine erosion rates for establishment

Shoreline Mapping Techniques

Numerous coastal mapping techniques have been developed over the last twenty-seven years (STAFFORD, 1971; DOLAN et al., 1978; FISHER and SIMPSON, 1979; LEATHERMAN, 1983; McBRIDE et al., 1991; THIELER
