Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
A new program of coastal monitoring has been jointly initiated by the provincial Geological Survey Branch and the federal Geological Survey of Canada. Monitoring of beach profiles and cliff-edge recession rates is taking place at a number of sites on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, including Placentia, Ship Cove and Big Barasway on Placentia Bay; the Holyrood Pond area of St. Mary's Bay; and the Topsail-Manuels area of Conception Bay. The sites were selected so as to cover as wide a geographic area as possible; to provide information in areas where problems already exist; and to build on existing studies. The objectives of this program are to provide long-term regular monitoring of selected sites, using the expertise residing in the Atlantic Geoscience Centre (GSC) and the advantages of accessibility for Geological Survey Branch staff. The ease of access to these sites has already allowed more frequent visits than under previous programs. Regular surveys on an annual or more frequent basis will substantially improve the value of the data, providing better estimates of mean coastal recession rates and a basis for relating variations in coastal response to the oceanographic, climatic, or geological factors that determine erosion rates.
