HIGH RESOLUTION 4D TERRESTRIAL LASER SCAN DATASET OF THE KIJKDUIN BEACH-DUNE SYSTEM IN THE NETHERLANDS
Nature Portfolio’s Scientific Data Journal published an article written by Sander Vos, Katharina Anders, Mieke Kuschnerus, Roderik Lindenbergh, Bernhard Höfle, Stefan Aarninkhof and Sierd de Vries, that describes a 6 month long hourly laser scan survey of the beach-dune system at Kijkduin, The Netherlands. The Netherlands is protected by about 250 kilometers of natural beach-dune systems and understanding the natural variability and resilience is of key importance to protect the Netherlands with the future climate change and sea level rise. The dataset provides information about storm responses and shoreward sand transport which is important for the resilience determination.
