2014 East Coast Rhode Island NOAA/NGS ATM Lidar-Derived Dune Crest, Toe and Shoreline, post-Hurricane Sandy

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The Storm-Induced Coastal Change Hazards component 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 2014 East Coast Rhode Island NOAA/NGS ATM lidar survey, post-Hurricane Sandy. 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.
