Offshore baseline for the exposed West Beaufort Sea, Alaska coastal region (Colville River to Point Barrow) generated to calculate shoreline change rates

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This dataset includes a reference baseline used by the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) to calculate rate-of-change statistics for the exposed north coast of Alaska coastal region between the Colville River and Point Barrow for the time period 1947 to 2012. This baseline layer serves as the starting point for all transects cast by the DSAS application and can be used to establish measurement points used to calculate shoreline-change rates.
