Data from: Observations of surface cobbles at two southern California beaches

About this Collection

Beach elevations were surveyed quarterly between January 2008 and July 2018 on cross-shore transects from the back beach to about 8 m water depth. Subaerial and submarine portions of the transects were surveyed with Global Positioning System (GPS) equipped all-terrain vehicle (ATV), and dolly or Jet Ski respectively. The subaerial portions were classified as sand, cobble, or bedrock using manual identification and a recording switch during the ATV surveys. Ground type was not identified in dolly or Jet Ski surveys. View this collection on the contributor's website.
