Description: Technical note
Purpose: To provide a low-cost method for obtaining data on shoreline changes. Shoreline change data acquired at regular intervals over a period of several years can provide the information needed for predicting coastal erosion rates. Beach width measurements acquired near coastal structures can indicate the direction of longshore movement of sediment, reversals in the direction of motion, and onshore-offshore motion.
