The National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards project derives features of beach morphology from lidar elevation data for the purpose of understanding and predicting storm impacts to our nation\'s coastlines. This dataset defines mean beach slopes along the United States Southeast Atlantic Ocean from Salvo to Duck, North Carolina for data collected at various times between 1996 and 2012. For further information regarding data collection and/or processing methods refer to USGS Open-File Report 2015-1053 (https://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2015/1053/).
