Time-series imagery of the northern Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana

An elevation transect at the same location in the Chandeleur Islands shows growth through time. Maps show transect location.

Detailed Description

Over short-time periods, we use annual satellite imagery, aerial photography, and submerged and terrestrial elevation data to measure change across the whole barrier-island system. Transects (purple lines) show the locations of annual elevation data and plots from the northernmost transect show vertical island growth due to increased sediment supply.
