Trends in coastal dynamics - Forillon This dataset covers the monitoring of changes in coastal dynamics in Forillon National Park. This measure consists of three field measurements: the rate and extent of shoreline displacement, monitored annually using benchmarks; the rate of change in the area of the various coastal types, monitored every 10 years using georeferenced aerial photographs; and beach width, monitored annually. Given that sea-level rise will inevitably affect coastal dynamics at Forillon, particularly with respect to coastal erosion, the monitoring of this measure is necessary in light of concerns about the park’s ecosystem. In certain low-lying areas of the park, this phenomenon could even result in the loss or alteration of important habitats, such as the Penouille or Cap-des-Rosiers marsh. 2019-05-29 2019-05-30 Parks Canada daniel.sigouin@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentCoastalMarineCoastal DynamicsWaterLand Trends_in_coastal_dynamics - ForillonCSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/ERhxPk2nSVtAnCkLURMa5M4BthPLJccfh4DilH7NdCxRQw Trends_in_coastal_dynamics - ForillonCSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/Ef4cy_v54VZCsg5OgVIlzJABCsLK2aHIxN3-Cb944KI46Q
