Digital coastlines and cliff edges from the Canadian Beaufort Sea were generated from accurately georeferenced aerial photography. These coastlines and cliff edges provide an accurate representation of the land/water interface at a given time and position along the coastline.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
