SCBPS data coverage


Welcome to SCBPS


The Southern California Beach Processes Study (SCBPS), sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the California Department of Boating and Waterways, is monitoring and modeling beach erosion, and providing the knowledge base for more effective local and regional beach management.

Ongoing observations of beach erosion and accretion (obtained with LIDAR, personal watercraft, all terrain vehicles, and hand-pushed dollies) are available to beach management agencies, and are used by SCBPS scientists to test and develop models for beach erosion.
