There are many methods of determining shoreline change and each method comes with its own set of assumptions, uncertainty estimates, and level of difficulty. Additionally, the shoreline must be identified to determine if it’s changing and there are a variety of datums and proxies available to define a “shoreline”. The specific conditions at the site being examined are extremely significant in determining the way in which shoreline change is calculated.
