Abstract

This study of a portion of Oregon's Lincoln County coast describes the physical limitations to land use of the various landforms in the study area. Seven major landform types comprise the study area: beaches, active dunes, stabilized dunes, marsh land and tidal flats, marine terraces, basaltic headlands, and uplands. Descriptions and evaluations of their physical characteristics, distribution, geologic and and engineering characteristics, and potentially hazardous processes are contained in the maps, figures, and text.
