Quantifying shoreline change on Hawaiʻi Island

Location: UH Hilo Science & Technology Building (STB) Room #108

A Maunakea Speaker Series presentation by Rose Hart, M.S. candidate of the University of Hawaii at Hilo's Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science program. To better predict and manage coastal vulnerabilities, Rose's research effort quantified shoreline change rates from the present and recent past at Hāpuna State Beach Park, Honoliʻi sea cliff, and Kapoho Tide Pools/Hawaiian Vacation Lands using shoreline records from historic aerial photographs and elevation datasets collected from small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS or drones). Results from this study provide insights to the chronic, seasonal, and episodic coastal processes that threaten communities and resources along Hawaiʻi Island's coast and help Hawaiʻi County planners improve coastal management strategies.
