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.
Long-term (~150 years) shoreline change rates for the Florida west coast (FLwc) (Anclote Key to Barefoot Beach) coastal region are included in this dataset. Rate calculations were computed within a GIS using the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 5, an ArcGIS extension developed by the U.S. Geological Survey. Long-term rates of shoreline change were calculated using a linear regression rate based on available shoreline data for Florida west coast (FLwc). 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 provide location and time information used to calculate rates of change. This dataset consists of shoreline change rates stored as a new transect layer.

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 transect layer or during the calculation of shoreline change rates performed by the software.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
These data were generated using DSAS v5. The transects automatically generated by the software were visually inspected along with the shoreline data prior to rate calculations. Sometimes transect positions were manually edited within a standard ArcMap edit session to adjust the position at which an individual transect intersected the shorelines to better represent an orthogonal position to the general trend of the coast over time.
Completeness_Report:
This dataset contains the transects automatically generated by the DSAS software application that were used to calculate long-term shoreline change rates for the region. Additional transects may have been generated but did not meet the required number of shorelines or time period requirements.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The uncertainty of the linear regression rate is estimated by the elements LR2, LSE and LCI90. See the attribute definition of each for more information.

Attribute_Label: LRR
Attribute_Definition:
A linear regression rate-of-change statistic was calculated by fitting a least-squares regression line to all shoreline points for a particular transect. Any shoreline points that are referenced to HWL were adjusted by the proxy-datum bias distance (meters) along the transect to correct for the offset between proxy-based HWL and datum-based MHW shorelines. The best-fit regression line is placed so that the sum of the squared residuals (determined by squaring the offset distance of each data point from the regression line and adding the squared residuals together) is minimized. The linear regression rate is the slope of the line. The rate is reported in meters per year with positive values indicating accretion and negative values indicating erosion.

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: LR2
Attribute_Definition:
The R-squared statistic, or coefficient of determination, is the proportion of variance in the data that is explained by a regression. It is a dimensionless index that ranges from 1.0 to 0.0 and measures how successfully the best-fit line accounts for variation in the data. The smaller the variability of the residual values around the regression line relative to the overall variability, the better the prediction (and closer the R-squared value is to 1.0).

Attribute_Label: LSE
Attribute_Definition:
This quantity is the standard error of the regression, also known as the standard error of the estimate. To calculate it, the distance between each data point and the regression line is calculated. These distances are squared then summed. The sum is divided by the number of data point minus two. The square root is taken of the result.

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain: Positive decimal values in meters.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: LCI90
Attribute_Definition:
The standard error of the slope with confidence interval describes the uncertainty of the reported rate. The LRR rates are determined by a best-fit regression line for the shoreline data at each transect. The slope of this line is the reported rate of change (in meters/year). The confidence interval (LCI) is calculated by multiplying the standard error (also called the standard deviation) of the slope by the two-tailed test statistic at the user-specified 90 percent confidence. This value is often reported in conjunction with the slope to describe the confidence of the reported rate. For example: LRR = 1.2 LCI90 = 0.7 could be reported as a rate of 1.2 (+/-) 0.7 meters/year.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
The entity and attribute information provided here describes the tabular data associated with long-term (greater than 50 years, and typically closer to 100 years) shoreline change rates, as well as rates that incorporate the known unidirectional offset between proxy-based high water line features and datum-based mean high water line features (the proxy-datum bias), and rates that did not have the necessary information to correct for this offset (no bias). Please review the individual attribute descriptions for detailed information. All calculations for length are in meter units and were based on the UTM zone 17N WGS 84 projection. This region, Florida west coast, has two shapefiles describing rates: long-term (LT) and short-term (ST).
