INVESTIGATIONS OF COASTAL EROSION BY MEANS OF LASER SCANNER VZ-1000 IN VESTPYNTEN, SPITSBERGEN
Author : Antonia Linzbach, Anatoly Sinitsyn, David Wrangborg, Nina Ganicheva, Emilie Guegan
The erosion of a coastal bluff was investigated using a Riegl VZ-1000 laser scanner. The bluff is located at Vestpynten (Spitsbergen), where the local road is threatened by erosion of the bluff. The bluff is aproximately four meters high. The coastal bluff was scanned three times during 2012-2013 field season. The resulting point clouds were used to illustrate the change of the surface of the coastal bluff and to calculate the material losses over time. Results can be used when one considers coastal protective measures for the studied area. Recommendations and suggestions regarding routines during field survey and data processing are presented.
