CP42A:
Close-Range Remote Sensing of Nearshore Processes and Coastal Morphology I

Session ID#: 92796

Session Description:
During the past decade, LiDAR, radar, multispectral and thermal sensors, as well as modern photogrammetry have become inexpensive and highly accessible. Close-range low-altitude (manned and autonomous aircraft) and ground-based platforms provide datasets with increasingly high resolution, both in time (seconds to days) and space (sub-meter), allowing for detailed observations of changes in coastal landscapes and the related nearshore and beach processes that drive those changes. These advances provide a new understanding of the patterns, rates, and causes of coastal circulation and morphodynamics on scales of kilometers and less. High-resolution, close-range remote sensing also allows for the documentation of ongoing and future effects of storms, sea-level rise, coastal restoration, and human impacts on coastal environments. Additionally, these technologies and methods facilitate interdisciplinary studies of the coastal zone. This session will highlight scientific results that have emerged from these technologies and methods and explore challenges and plans for future remote sensing efforts.
