Title: Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Intracoastal Waterway digitized shoreline

Abstract

Critical military training and testing on lands along the nation’s coastal and estuarine shorelines are increasingly placed at risk because of development pressures in surrounding areas, impairments due to other anthropogenic disturbances, and increasing requirements for compliance with environmental regulations. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) intends to enhance and sustain its training and testing assets and to optimize its stewardship of natural resources through the development and application of an ecosystem-based management approach on DoD installations. To accomplish this goal, particularly for installations in estuarine/coastal environments, the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) launched the Defense Coastal/Estuarine Research Program (DCERP) as a minimum 10-year effort at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (MCBCL) in North Carolina. The results of the first six years of the program (DCERP1) are presented here.The overarching objectives of DCERP are to: (1) understand the effects of military training activities, infrastructure development, and other coastal military installations; (2) develop models, tools, and indicators to evaluate ecosystem health; and (3) recommend adaptive management strategies to sustain ecosystem natural resources within the context of an active military installation.The shoreline was digitized as the land water boundary in 2004, 1989, and 1956 imagery. The imagery was obtained frommore » the Installation Geospatial Information & Services Office, ITSD, BLSD, MCB Camp Lejeune, NC. These shorelines were digitized to be used to calculate shoreline-change rates within the New River Estuary as part of the Defense Coastal/Estuarine Research Program. Each shoreline was digitized separately and then merged to create one shapefile containing the shorelines of all three years.« less
