Kratzmann, M.G., Farris, A.S., Weber, K.M., Henderson, R.E., and Himmelstoss, E.A., 2021, USGS national shoreline change-A GIS compilation of updated vector shorelines (1800s - 2010s) and associated shoreline change data for the Georgia and Florida Coasts: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


During Hurricane Irma in September 2017, Florida and Georgia experienced significant impacts to beaches, dunes, barrier islands, and coral reefs. Extensive erosion and coral losses result in increased immediate and long-term hazards to shorelines that include densely populated regions. These hazards put critical infrastructure at risk to future flooding and erosion and may cause economic losses. The USGS Coastal and Marine Hazards Resources Program (CMHRP) is assessing hurricane-induced coastal erosion along the southeast US coastline and implications for vulnerability to future storms. Shoreline positions were compiled prior to and following Hurricane Irma along the sandy shorelines of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts of Florida [...]
