CanCoast - Coastal Materials Version 2.0 CanCoast is a geospatial database of the physical characteristics of Canada's marine coasts. It includes both feature classes that are not expected to change through time, and feature classes that are expected to change as climate changes. CanCoast includes: wave-height change with sea ice (early and late 21st century); sea-level change (early and late century); ground ice content; coastal materials; tidal range; and backshore slope. These are mapped to a common high-resolution shoreline and used to calculate indices that show the coastal sensitivity of Canada's marine coasts in modelled early and late 21st century climates. 2019-05-01 2019-09-17 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.gsc-geosciencedata-donneesgeoscience-cgc.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCoastal and Marine Geologyground iceCoasts CanCoast - Matériaux de zones côtières, version 2.0HTML https://doi.org/10.4095/314669 CanCoast - Coastal Materials Version 2.0HTML https://doi.org/10.4095/314669 CanCoast - Coastal Materials Version 2.0 - EnglishZIP https://bit.ly/31cYvmV CanCoast - Coastal Materials Version 2.0 - FrenchZIP https://bit.ly/31cYvmV
