Connecticut Shoreline Trends Analyses
Connecticut Sea Grant
Connecticut Sea Grant partnered with CLEAR and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to conduct a Geographic Information System (GIS) time series analysis using maps of the Connecticut shoreline from time periods between 1880 and 2006. A detailed data set describing shoreline trends from a statewide, regional, and localized perspective was produced showing how much the shoreline has changed and how quickly. These data are critical in working with stakeholders on coastal community resilience.
