The iBluff package in the R language provides an environment to conduct morphological analysis of coastal bluffs / cliffs and offers an automatic and reproducible alternative of identifying top and toe instead of hand digitizing. This package extracts elevation profiles along automatically identified pseudo-perpendicular transects on the bluff face, bluff/cliff top, toe, secondary inflections, relative concavity/convexity of bluff/cliff face, and beach dunes (dune crests and troughs) without knowing a priory the number of dunes to be identified.
