Regional assessments of shoreline change are essential for a broader understanding of coastal erosion hazards and vulnerabilities on spatial scales of hundreds to thousands of kilometers. However, regional assessments provide little information on factors that influence the coastal behavior on scales of kilometers to tens of kilometers. This study was part of a national project aimed at measuring, evaluating, and disseminating rates of shoreline change using a consistent methodology and a systematic approach for all open-ocean coastal regions of the U.S. The data and associated analyses are ideal for examining coastal change on a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Measurements of shoreline position are made at 50-meter intervals over large coastal regions (>1000 km) and rates of change are assessed over multiple time periods, with the longest record going back more than 150 years.
