Coastal Resources Program

The Coastal Resources Section conducts research within Alabama’s coastal zone to increase our understanding of beach and shoreline change, environmental quality, and land use, and to acquire and develop supporting digital themes and data sets.

Coastal assessments provide resource managers and community planners with information critical to balancing sustainable growth and protecting the natural resources of our coastal areas.

Recent section activities include Beach Assessments, investigation of Sand Resources, GIS and Remote Sensing, and GIS Support during natural disasters.
