Final Project Report for "Empirical Projection of Future Shoreline Position and Inundation Due to Sea Level Rise": .

Summary

Chronic erosion leads to loss of property and critical habitats, and it restricts public access along developed coasts. There are, currently, no practical methods for estimating the spatial extent of erosion hazard, despite the fact that increased sea level rise (SLR) over the current century is likely to contribute toward more land being exposed to future erosion. This study creates a new model which provides estimates of exposure to erosion on a local geographic scale. This new method is a valuable tool for the coastal community because of its ease of implementation and because it uses historical shoreline trends, information that is widely available. This study applies the new model to all sandy shorelines of the Hawaiian Island [...]
