Beach Profile Locations

Metadata Updated: April 9, 2015

Beaches are commonly characterized by cross-shore surveys. The resulting profiles represent the elevation of the beach surface and nearshore seabed from the back of the beach to beyond the closure depth. The profile data show seasonal and long-term elevation changes in the beach and nearshore zone. These beach profile data provide information pertaining to the historic and existing sand volumes, beach elevations, and shoreline positions that are useful for planning and design.SANDAG has recorded beach profiles throughout the Coastal RSM Plan area since 1995, and the USACE recorded profiles from 1934 to 1989. North and South County profile locations are shown in Figures 9 and 10, respectively. Profiles are presently recorded in April/May to measure post-winter conditions and in October to measure post-summer conditions. The beach profiles are used to assess seasonal changes in sand movement on- and offshore, shoreline position, beach retreat or advance, and closure depth. The latest profiles are assumed to represent existing conditions at each sand placement site.Beach Profile data collected along the coastline of San Diego County during the period of 1996 through 2004 is available via a ZIP file from here: http://www.sandag.org/index.asp?projectid=101=projects.detail This dataset was submitted to CSMW by SANDAG as part of the San Diego County Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan (2009).
