Coastal System Science I

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Coastal and Marine Specialty Group
Organizers: Jean Ellis
Chairs: Jean Ellis


In addition to its intrinsic value, the coastal zone is one of the most dynamic and ecologically significant landscapes on Earth's surface. Heightened awareness of global climate change and associated rising sea levels has placed an increased impetus on the management of coastal and aeolian systems. This series of sessions will have presentations exploring recent advances in GIS and remote sensing technologies for coastal applications including, but not limited to: GIS, LiDAR, UAVs, and participatory mapping. In addition, we will explore many aspects of coastal geomorphology, including, but not limited to: surf zone processes and landforms; beach-dune interactions; lagoon, estuary, mud-flat, and marsh dynamics; and modeling. Lastly, some presentations will explore recent advances and observations in applied coastal and aeolian research.
