A fundamental aspect of coastal research is the collection of thorough and accurate baseline information through the conduction of structured shoreline surveys and coastal inventories. Be it information on shore type and extent, damage or potential damage, behavior and knowledge of coastal user groups, or monitoring of coastal change, surveys play an integral role in the gathering of such data.
