​Matt Macander of ABR, Inc. will present "Extensive mapping of coastal change in Alaska by Landsat time-series analysis, 1972–2013". The landscape-scale effects of coastal storms on Alaska's Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska coasts includes coastal erosion, migration of spits and barrier islands, breaching of coastal lakes and lagoons, and inundation and salt-kill of vegetation. In areas experiencing moderate to large effects, changes can be mapped by analyzing trends in time series of Landsat imagery.
