Summary

This indicator is an index of impacts from hardened structures like jetties, groins, and human infrastructure.Reason for SelectionAltered beaches (including human developments along shorelines, jetties, groins, seawalls, revetments, and other structures) provide a measure of overall habitat alteration. Human infrastructure along shorelines generally stabilizes barrier islands, and thereby impedes beach migration and barrier island rollover processes. Additionally, seawalls are difficult to locate on aerial photography, and developed shorelines may act as a surrogate for unmapped shoreline armoring.Groins, seawalls, jetties, and revetments have resulted in narrowing of beaches, or greater beach loss, compared to unstructured beaches [...]
