NJ's Changing Shoreline

This video, produced by the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance (which is facilitated by Rutgers University),  describes the dynamics of New Jersey's Atlantic Coast shoreline since the 19th Century, using both historical maps as well as satellite image animation  from 1984 - 2012 along NJ's entire Atlantic coast. Viewers can observe periods of erosion, beach narrowing and beach widening as these change over time.
