This summary report marks the completion of the Shoreline Situation Report project. For over six years project team members with the Department of Geological Oceanography at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science have inventoried over 5,000 miles of shoreline in Tidewater Virginia. The methodology was developed and evaluated with funding through the Chesapeake Research Consortium, Inc. from the Research Applied to National Needs (RANN) program of the National Science Foundation. After preliminary evaluation as to its worth, the project became part of Virginia's Coastal Resources Management Program, supported by the Office of Conmerce and Resources with funds provided by the Office of Coastal Zone Management, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce.
