Time-series imagery of the northern Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana

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.
