Satellite Images Monitor 50 Year Coastal Erosion in Alaska

Satellite images from high resolution satellite sensors and moderate resolution sensors can provide researchers and scientists with data for assessment and analysis of water temperature, salinity, shoreline changes, bathymetry and potential threats to our coasts. Assessments and predictive capabilities through satellite imagery from satellite sensors incorporated with GIS mapping are needed to predict onset of events that may significantly affect human health, critical wetlands and ecosystems and economic development.
We added this new series of erosion photographs to your photo gallery of erosion
Enjoy!
