Feature Story

/// Beyond the Tide: Tracking California’s Coastal Change with Drones, GIS, GNSS, and Satellite Imagery

Collecting data with the Arrow Gold GNSS receiver, ArcGIS Field Maps, and iPhone for tracking coastline along the California coast, sand dune mapping, and beach ecology study

Dr. Kyle Emery, an Assistant Researcher at the Marine Science Institute of the University of California, Santa Barbara, is leading a three-year research project to measure and monitor how sandy beaches and nearby dunes along the California coast change seasonally and after strong events. Using a combination of technologies — including an Arrow Gold+ GNSS receiver, the free CRTN network, ArcGIS Field Maps, and a DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral drone — Emery and his assistants will collect data at 14 sites along the California coast. He hopes to uncover patterns in beach and dune changes, and ultimately thereby enable researchers to hopefully more accurately predict the impact of sea level rise (SLR) on these vulnerable ecologies. Emery hopes his work can benefit not only local communities that depend on these resources, but also researchers globally by providing a method to monitor beach ecology over time and potentially at large scale.
