Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 4.4 transects with long-term linear regression rate calculations for the exposed north coast of Alaska, from Icy Cape to Cape Prince of Wales

Online link
Description This dataset consists of long-term (less than 68 years) shoreline change rates for the exposed coast of the north coast of Alaska from Icy Cape to Cape Prince of Wales. Rate calculations were computed within a GIS using the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 4.4, an ArcGIS extension developed by the U.S. Geological Survey. Rates of shoreline change were calculated using a linear regression rate-of-change (lrr) method based on available shoreline data between 1948 and 2016. A reference baseline was used as the originating point for the orthogonal transects cast by the DSAS software. The transects intersect each shoreline establishing measurement points, which are then used to calculate shoreline change rates. [More]
