Description This dataset represents shoreline change rates for the New Jersey coastline (Point Pleasant, NJ to Longport, NJ) from 1839 to 2012. Shoreline data were obtained from multiple data sources, including the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Datasets were compiled and analyzed using the R package Analyzing Moving Boundaries Using R (AMBUR) program. Rates of shoreline change can be used for evaluating living shoreline resources, decision-making for future resource and urban planning, and restoration of both protected and open-ocean shorelines.
