Coastal Hazard Assessments

Steps in Supporting Resilient Coastal Communities

  1. Build sustainable partnerships and support environmental coordinators to develop direct community engagement
  2. Develop baseline data sets and assessments of historical shoreline change rates
      1. A minimum of two fieldwork campaigns at each location with annual repeat visits and surveys
      2. Acquisition, processing, and analysis of historical and contemporary aerial imagery
      3. The establishment of sustained local monitoring programs that provide accurate, time-sensitive data
  3. Applicable data sets that are tailored for local needs, enable informed decision-making, and promote a close working relationship between scientists and local stakeholders

Total Costs: $15,000-$18,000 (dependent on travel costs)

Below is an example video that would be presented after obtaining photos with a time-lapse camera. The photos can then be used to determine the change in the shoreline, erosion or accretion. Two posters showing the change in shorelines of Dillingham and Chignik Bay are also shown below.
