CanCoast - Backshore Slope Version 5.0

CanCoast - Backshore Slope Version 5.0 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. 2019-09-17 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.gsc-geosciencedata-donneesgeoscience-cgc.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCoastal and Marine Geologyground iceCoasts CanCoast - Pente de l'arrière-plage, version 5.0HTML https://doi.org/10.4095/314669 CanCoast - Backshore Slope Version 5.0HTML https://doi.org/10.4095/314669 CanCoast - Backshore Slope Version 5.0 - FrenchZIP https://bit.ly/31cYvmV CanCoast - Backshore Slope Version 5.0 - EnglishZIP https://bit.ly/31cYvmV
