Long-Term Shore Changes
Nobiru Coast, which is 2.8 km long coast located in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, is a well-known coast because of high sediment deposition rate. The sediment deposit at the western end causes significant effect on the aquaculture in Matsushima Bay due to closure of a channel connecting open sea and Matsushima Bay. The tsunami, which occurred on 11 March 2011, caused different types of damage on the left and right-hand sides of the coast. This study evaluates change of shoreline on Nobiru Coast at decadal to centennial scales including the 2011 tsunami impact using aerial and satellites images.
