Beach Morphology Monitoring Program
Summary Plot 2
Horizontal beach profile change along the Columbia River littoral cell:
summer 1997-winter 1998 and summer 1997-summer 1998. This figure
shows horizontal beach profile change.
The 2.0-m contour (relative to the land-based NAVD 88 datum) has
been extracted from each profile and the figure reveals contour
change between subsequent surveys. The horizontal change trend
mirrors that of the vertical changes in that significant contour
recession occurred during winter 1998 and many of the beaches
recovered by summer 1998.
