Future Shoreline Changes
The analysis followed the program developed by the U.S. Geological Survey and the guidance of the shoreline analysis protocol produced for the National Park Service. Herein will present findings from an analysis that evaluated the relationship between sea level rise and shoreline retreat using the Bruun Rule. Scientists and engineers have widely used the Bruun Rule to examine the relationship between sea level rise and shoreline retreat for over 50 years. The findings will demonstrate the difference between the two methods and correlate the results to sea level rise observations (Delaware Geologic Survey, 2016) to shoreline retreat.
