Net shoreline movement

graph showing net shoreline movement

Detailed Description

Statistics plotted include the net shoreline movement (NSM), which is the total movement between the two shoreline positions. This measurement of change uses only two dates, and thus is considered an end point measure of change, as it does not use any other information between dates. Sandy impact (blue line): The net shoreline movement following Hurricane Sandy (Oct. 27 – Nov. 05) was progradational and averaged 9.9 meters (m) but movement ranged from +43.7 m to -22.4 m. Post-Sandy winter (red line): From Nov. 5 - Mar. 13, the average shoreline change was highly erosional (-35.4 m) with a maximum landward shift of -66.9 m.
