CoastlineChange

The coastal images were collected by three generations of Landsat instruments: the Thematic Mapper on Landsat 5, the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus on Landsat 7 and the Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8.

A series of 15 images, spanning a 30-year period, show major coastline changes off the coast of Cape Cod. During this time, three major breaches opened in the system, and the barrier islands connected to the coastline and to each other at various times. The creation of sandbars and shoals gives hints to the sand’s movement up and down the coast.

Coastal changes are typically subtle. Major “nor’easter” storms in 1987 and 2007 created the most dramatic coastal change.
