Spatio-Temporal Assessment of Tidal Inlet and Stream Movements and their Influence on Coastal Vulnerability

PIs: Chester W. Jackson Jr. (Department of Geology and Geography, Georgia Southern University) and Clark R. Alexander (Skidaway Institute of Oceanography)

Support: Georgia Sea Grant College Program

Timeframe: 2012-2013

Project Ojectives:
The primary objectives of the project are to: (1) develop a solid base of historical shoreline and inlet data for Camden and Glynn Counties in Georgia; (2) determine the spatial extent of the influence of tidal inlets on shoreline erosion; (3) construct shoreline change and inlet hazard maps for barrier islands estuarine areas, and the mainland; and (4) provide outreach activities that include educating scientists, managers and non-science-oriented stakeholders concerned with coastal issues. Ultimately, datasets, methodologies, and geospatial tools developed within this study can be used by researchers, policymakers, planners, and managers.
