Community Based Methods for Monitoring Coastal Erosion

The Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys offers a step-by-step guide is designed to teach interested communities how to design and install three different types of erosion monitoring systems, with tips for selecting monitoring sites, instructions for site installation and data collection, and lists of all necessary materials. The goal of the booklet is to equip local observers with the training and tools to methodically document erosion-prone coastal areas, which helps to build local capacity and communicate climate concerns.
