Description

Geological features such as underlying bedrock and coarse sediments (e.g. gravels) are known to influence sandy beach morphology, however existing observations are generally limited to small areas and/or qualitative observations. Using mobile terrestrial LiDAR collected twice yearly from 2017 to 2021, this study quantitatively examined the influence of intermittently and/or semi-permanently exposed gravels and bedrock on seasonal subaerial beach elevations along ~40 km of coast in northern San Diego County, California. The dataset includes mapped beach elevations, and gravel/bedrock locations in geotiff format.
