..., North Carolina and Virginia beaches ( Dolan et al., 1980 ; Moore, 2000 ). Larger variations on the order of ±10 m are estimated for seasonal fluctuations of HWL ( Smith and Zarillo, 1990 ), but we attempted to minimize offset of the wet-dry line due to seasonal variability by selecting imagery...
