Abstract : PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes the use of lidar data in conjunction with beach profile surveys to examine morphologic and volumetric change on a regional scale. The study area includes three counties and over 70 miles of the southwest Florida coastline. The lidar data were obtained from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Joint Airborne Lidar Bathymetric Technical Center of Expertise. Beach profile surveys were provided by USACE Jacksonville District (SAJ), University of South Florida (USF), and Coastal Planning and Engineering (now CBI Industries, Inc.). The study region is entirely within the SAJ jurisdiction.
