Abstract of Thesis Presented to the Graduate School of the University of Florida in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of Engineering VIDEO MONITORING TECHNIQUES IN THE COASTAL ENVIRONMENT By The field of coastal engineering has primarily utilized traditional measurement techniques such as boat surveys and beach profiles. Aerial photography has played a major role in the mapping of coastlines and ocean currents. More recent technology has provided the ability to make field measurements with precision electronic instrumentation, but the problem of making large-scale measurements within economic bounds remains. The video revolution and, in particular, desktop video has greatly enhanced the ability of scientists and engineers to visualize events over greater periods of time and larger scales than ever before. The uses of video, benefits, shortcomings, and future expectations are presented as applicable to the field of coastal engineering. This feasibility study incorporates some applications which have previously been explored, as well as others which result from two unique video data sets that were collected between 1991 and the present.
