SOCAL_BASELINE - Offshore Baseline for Southern California Generated to Calculate Shoreline Change Rates

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Rates of long-term and short-term shoreline change were generated in a GIS using the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 3.0; An ArcGIS extension for calculating shoreline change: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2005-1304, Thieler, E.R., Himmelstoss, E.A., Zichichi, J.L., and Miller, T.M. The extension is designed to efficiently lead a user through the major steps of shoreline change analysis. This extension to ArcGIS contains three main components that define a baseline, generate orthogonal transects at a user-defined separation along the coast, and calculate rates of change (linear regression, endpoint rate, average of rates, average of endpoints, jackknife).
