2019-20 Atlantic Storm Season and its Impacts on Boulder Movement along Western Ireland

"Drone photographs made into Metashape SfM models and processed with CloudCompare could be a useful way of monitoring and analyzing both small-scale movement and large-scale changes in CBD morphology. For the 2019-20 storm season, we documented, measured, and described ridge movement along all three Aran Islands to further expand our understanding of sediment dynamics of CBD. Both Metashape and CloudCompare generated their own sets of challenges related to alignment and scaling which made it difficult to analyze where CBD movement was occurring and at what scales. A long-term goal will be to continue monitoring these coasts over many years and track how their yearly incremental changes add and compound to create large morphological changes over time. "
