2012 Post-Hurricane Sandy Northeast Atlantic Coast USGS Lidar-Derived Dune Crest, Toe and Shoreline

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The Storm-Induced Coastal Change Hazards component of the of the National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards project focuses on understanding the magnitude and variability of extreme storm impacts on sandy beaches. Lidar-derived beach morphologic features such as dune crest, toe and shoreline help define the vulnerability of the beach to storm impacts. This dataset defines the elevation and position of the seaward-most dune crest and toe and the mean high water shoreline derived from the 2012 Post-Hurricane Sandy Northeast Atlantic (North Carolina to Delaware) USGS lidar survey. Beach width is included and is defined as the distance between the dune toe and shoreline along a cross-shore profile. The beach slope is calculated using this beach width and the elevation of the shoreline and dune toe.
