Abstract: This manual sets out an approach to the identification and monitoring of shoreline change and its causative processes at local and regional scales that is appropriate to the coastal management problems of the region as reported by the regional contributors. The approach aims to promote the targeting of sparse resources on the acquisition and provision of information that is most relevant to the management of the problem. The procedures for monitoring shoreline change and its contributory processes are described, including the use of accessible relevant regional information and data or meta-data sets.
