Abstract (type = abstract)
On October 29th, 2012, Superstorm Sandy breached the dune system in the Borough of Mantoloking, New Jersey, in particular locations. In this thesis, LiDAR-based morphological pre-storm data of the specific borough on the barrier island are analyzed. This assessment was carried out by segmenting the dune system perpendicular to the shoreline starting from north at Curtis Point Drive to further south at Carrigan Place. Multiple cross sections were created in order to identify the location and elevation of the dune crest. To enhance and better understand the results with respect to height, the volumes of dunes were calculated as well. The latest, year-2010 LiDAR data was used as the baseline to perform the analysis, and the Quick Terrain Modeler Version 8.0.0 was used as an exploitation tool. Morphometric parameters estimated from the LIDAR data, explain the presence of a general relationship between the initial breaching and the dune morphology. Results show that the initial breaching probably occurred where the complex was low either in height or volume and therefore the overwash from the storm surge removed nearly the entire dune complex. A more consistent construction and/or better maintenance program could possibly help make the dune system more uniform along the shoreline and help diffuse the energy and reduce the total damage. A regular monitoring of the morphometric parameters of a dune system using LiDAR could also provide an “early warning” to the process of shoreline management.
