Coastal Ocean Institute Moving Shoreline Research Program

The Moving Shoreline (pdf format)

Rising sea level and natural changes in the shoreline have obvious impacts on coastal property, but predicting the location of the losses is not always obvious. Improved understanding of how shorelines change with time can help us better plan coastal development and respond to recurrent or episodic threats.
