Description: Technical note
Purpose: There will always be a need for accurate beach and nearshore survey data. Several technologies are available for collecting survey data in these zones with each method having its advantages and disadvantages for specific data collection requirements. It is essential that survey specifications originate from the project's functional requirements and that survey requirements are realistic and economically attained (USACE 1996). This publication presents the most commonly used technologies in performing this type of survey and summarizes their performance capabilities and limitations. The information presented here is intended to provide engineers and scientists with the essential knowledge to select the appropriate survey technology in order to meet project requirements.
