Connecticut Shoreline Change Analysis
100 Years of Erosion and Accretion
A two-tiered system – “town” and “geologic shoreline districts” – was used to aggregate and analyze the output. Geologically, the Connecticut shoreline can be divided into seven different districts, each containing a generally unique range of geologic features show below.
(Arthur Bloom (1967) via CAM Planning Report 29 “Shoreline Erosion and Recommended Planning Process” 1979.)
District A – Rock and drift; much artificial fill
District B – Glacial drift and beaches
District C – Glacial drift and rock
District D – Rock and marshes
District E – Glacial drift and beaches
District F – Glacial drift and rock
