March 2022 - North Coast Post-Storm Survey - Digital Terrain Model

Fugro were commissioned to undertake a post-storm LiDAR survey of the soft sedimentary areas along the north coast of Northern Ireland in March 2022 This survey was to cover the following areas: Curran Strand, Portrush East Strand, Portstewart Strand and Downhill Beach to Magilligan.This project was commissioned following the successive storm events during February and March 2022 (Storm Dudley, Storm Eunice and Storm Franklin) which did considerable damage to the sandy beaches along the North Coast. The objective of this survey was to ascertain change which has occurred along these soft sediment coastlines at the north coast since the baseline survey, which was acquired in 2021.Data was provided in the same format as the topographic LiDAR data collected in the Northern Ireland 3-Dimensional Coastal Survey to allow changes between these two datasets to be ascertained.This is the Digital Terrain Model created from the post-storm LiDAR data.
