Earth Observation Based Assessment of Area Changes Related to Hurricane Events

Barrier islands are elongated sand-based coastal landforms that are separated by open water from the main land.This study briefly discussed herein builds upon a previous DEVELOP project completed in the fall of 2009. The previous study utilized Landsat and ASTER imagery to create 21 land cover maps of Dauphin Island between the years of 1983 and 2009.
