Coastal Geology Meets Surveying and GIS
When: 08-14-2017, 09-08-2017
SECI was engaged to assess the vulnerability of three coastal high-value cultural resource sites in Maryland. SECI used a combination of field survey, geological assessment and GIS based techniques to determine the extent, rate and characteristics of shoreline change. In this case, SECI determined that the average rate of shoreline recession was approximately 1ft/year due primarily to the susceptibility of non-cohesive granular soils to wave action and storm surge.
