USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal

Coastal erosion is a widespread process along most coastlines. As the coast changes, there are a wide range of ways that change can affect coastal communities, habitats, and the physical characteristics of the coast-including beach erosion, shoreline retreat, land loss, and damage to infrastructure. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is responsible for conducting a national assessment of shoreline change including research on coastal change hazards, understanding the processes that cause coastal change, and developing models to forecast future change. This portal provides access to USGS analysis of shoreline changes along the coast of Alaska. Use the link below to access the Coastal Change Hazards Portal and select: Shoreline Change>Alaska long-term (LT) rates to view rates of shoreline change.

Links to data and reports are also provided at this site.
