Beach changes are observed by volunteer data gathered by the State of Maine Beach Profiling Project, in addition to the Maine Beach Mapping Project. Shoreline changes observed since 2011 at the majority of southern Maine’s beaches allow scientists to assign letter grades for the overall “status” of the beaches in terms of shoreline change trends. Observations are documented in the 2013 State of Maine’s Beaches Report released during this session.
