Description: Technical note
Purpose: 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 jetties and navigation channels on adjacent shorelines, formulating sediment budgets, and calibrating and verifying numerical models of shoreline response. This Technical Note reviews definitions of the shoreline, their relation to the data sources, and characteristics of the observed shoreline shape or signal that reflects the acting processes and measurement procedure.
