Abstract:

This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers data report documents available terrestrial lidar datasets collected by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory CHL, Coastal Lidar and Radar Imaging System between 2011 and 2017 along the northern Outer Banks of North Carolina near the CHL Field Research Facility. The report briefly describes the system and study site as well as the survey data extents, collection dates, and environmental context and data access information for the point cloud and digital elevation model products. Initial morphology data products and initial analyses are presented including calculations of shoreline change, dune volume, beach volume, beach slope, and cumulative elevation change over the 6-year study period. Follow-on reports will update the description of the available data repository moving forward.
