Abstract

In-site bathymetric measurements are too expensive to be sufficiently available for the investigation on beach changes. We proposed a series of image processing to detect waterlines from 31 satellite images over 12 years. A correction method is used to determine the corresponding shorelines considering tidal variations. Annual and seasonal shoreline changes at the Tainan Gold Coast (TGC), Taiwan, were evaluated. Effect of groins at the southern TGC on beach evolution was also studied. The method is proven to be applicable for shoreline change.
