This dataset is a compilation of completed, in progress, and planned restoration projects identified in the study area by the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) Project Tracker as of March 2022. The goal of compiling projects and information was to identify target resources and impacts of these projects in the study area. Projects were screened for action types, completion year, and resources intended to benefit from restoration in barrier island and shoreline systems. In addition, system components of structure and function were identified. The potential for geomorphological impacts was categorized among different types of projects.

This part of the data release presents a shapefile that includes a spatial index of orthoimagery and elevation data describing the Alaskan coastline from Icy Cape to Cape Prince of Wales. The data products referenced in this index include orthoimagery, digital surface models, and elevation point clouds which were generated from aerial imagery using structure-from-motion methods. Fairbanks Fodar, a contracted mapping service, collected the aerial imagery in 2016 and created all of the data products referenced here. Due to the enormous extent of this dataset, the products are split into separate files with more manageable sizes. Each polygon in this shapefile index provides a geographic outline of a data file’s coverage,...

This point shapefile approximates locations within 20 km of the North Pacific Coastline, as defined by the "World Country Boundaries (Generalized)" shapefile distributed by ESRI as part of their Data & Maps data series. They are based on raster data at 4 km resolution. Therefore there are between 3-5 points extending out from each location along the shoreline (at 4 km intervals).

This dataset contains measurements of wave height, peak wave period, and water depth taken every 0.5 hours from February 13 to June 12, 2020, at three wave gauge locations along the Fog Point shoreline in Martin National Wildlife Refuge, Maryland. These wave gauges were continuously sampled at 10 Hz, capturing 20-minute bursts every 30 minutes (peak wave periods longer than 7s were removed). Additionally, the dataset includes measurements of current velocity at one location during the same period. A tilt current meter (TCM, Lowell Instruments LLC, short-TCMs, range of 0-60 cm/s), consisting of a tilt-corrected compass in a buoyant casing and attached to a concrete tile at the sediment surface, was used to measure...

The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) launched the Shoreline Change Project in 1989 to identify erosion-prone areas of the Massachusetts coast. Seventy-six maps were produced in 1997 depicting a statistical analysis of shoreline change on ocean-facing shorelines from the mid-1800s to 1978 using multiple data sources. In 2001, a 1994 shoreline was added. More recently, in cooperation with CZM, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) delineated a new shoreline for Massachusetts using color aerial ortho-imagery from 2008 to 2009 and topographic lidar data collected in 2007. This update included a marsh shoreline, which was defined to be the tonal difference between low- and high-marsh seen in ortho-photos....

This feature class contains salt water polygons. The Forest shoreline originated from the cartographic feature files (CFF). All small islands not in the CFF were digitzed from 1:63,360 paper quads. Columbia Bay was replaced in 1993 with arcs digitized from 1990 CNF aerial photos (approx. scale 1:31680). Valdez Arm and Prince Wiilliam Sound (PWS) are closed with artificial arcs to create the salt water polygon for PWS.

Information was gathered to support a cumulative effects assessment of restoration in barrier island and shoreline systems of the north central Gulf of Mexico. Information includes: 1) results from two literature searches to help guide the development of a conceptual model of a barrier island and shoreline system and identify drivers and stressors important to that system, and 2) an accounting of restoration projects and descriptive information to document the distribution of Deepwater Horizon-funded restoration projects within the study area and guide the identification of potential effects on focal resources.

We conducted two literature searches to help guide the development of a conceptual model of a barrier island and shoreline system in response to cumulative effects of restoration projects. The first search targeted examples of cumulative effects assessments and/or existing conceptual models from which a system-specific conceptual model can be built. The second search targeted the identification of barrier island and shoreline environmental system components, drivers and stressors. There are two data sheets in this dataset; one set of records from each literature search. Each spreadsheet includes record information pulled directly from the Web of Science searches, such as title, authors, abstract, and publication...
