Offshore baseline generated to calculate shoreline change rates for the north coast of Alaska, Icy Cape to Cape Prince of Wales

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 coast of Alaska from Icy Cape and Cape Prince Wales for the time period 1948 to 2016. 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.
