Description:
Abstract:
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.
Purpose:
Shoreline positions were compiled prior to and following Hurricane Irma along the sandy shorelines of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts of Florida and the coast of Georgia. Shoreline positions from the mid-1800s through 2018 were used to update the shoreline change rates for Florida and Georgia using the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) software. The shoreline positions and updated shoreline change rates provide actionable information to homeowners, coastal communities, and managers of public and private properties to improve resiliency for long-term hazards.
This dataset consists of point data which are created by the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version v5 at the intersection of shoreline and transect locations for the Florida east coast (FLec) (border with GA to Key Biscayne) coastal region. A reference baseline was used as the originating point for the orthogonal transects cast by the DSAS software. These point data contain identification information related to the DSAS transect (TransectID, TransOrder) as well as the shoreline (ShorelineID, Uncertainty). Measurement transects are cast by DSAS from the baseline to intersect shoreline vectors, and the intersect data provide location and time information used to calculate rates of change.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The attributes of this dataset are based on the field requirements of the Digital Shoreline Analysis System and were automatically generated by the software during the generation of the intersects layer.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
These data were generated using DSAS, an automated software program, which does not perform checks for fidelity of the input features. Following generation of the rates and intersects by the DSAS software a visual inspection of the intersects was performed in map view to determine that no unwanted measurements were included in the desired (long- or short-term) shoreline change analysis.
Completeness_Report:
This dataset contains all the shoreline/transect intersects used to compute rates in the DSAS v5 software application.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The intersection points represent the location where transects cast by the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) software crosses a historical shoreline position. They can be used to visually display which shorelines were used in the rate calculations and capture details on the shoreline represented by the intersection. The distances between the reference baseline and each shoreline intersection along a transect are used by the DSAS software to compute the shoreline change metrics.
