iCoast - Did the Coast Change? Crowd-sourced Coastal Classifications

On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall as a post-tropical storm near Brigantine, New Jersey, with sustained winds of 70 knots (80 miles per hour) and tropical-storm-force winds extending 870 nautical miles in diameter (Blake and others, 2013). The effects of Hurricane Sandy’s winds and storm surge included erosion of the beaches and dunes as well as breaching of barrier islands in...
