Abstract

This document contains five data tables in PDF file formats, that are used to characterize littoral subcell (beach, river mouth, and inner-shelf) conditions in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) region (Washington, Oregon, and Northern California). These data have been compiled from pre-existing data sets (see citations in Table notes and References, below) for the purposes of predicting possible beach erosion from potential future sea level rise (SLR), as introduced in Kingen (2018) and Peterson et al. (2019, 2020a,b). The five data tables include Heavy-mineral tracers (Table 1), Heavy-mineral data (normalized) (Table 2), Subcell beach profile settings (Table 3), Subcell beach profile parameters (Table 4), and Subcell shelf profile parameters (Table 5). Parts of the Heavy-mineral data (Tables 1 and 2) have been used in Peterson et al. (1984a,b; 2009; 2010; 2016; and 2020b). Detailed motivation, methods and applications for the compiled data in Tables 1 and 2 are provided in Peterson et al. (2020b). Parts of the beach profile data (Tables 3 and 4) have been used in Peterson et al. (2020b). Detailed motivation, methods and applications for the compiled data in Tables 3 and 4 are provided in Peterson et al. (2020b). Parts of the inner-shelf profile data (Table 5) have been used in Peterson et al. (2020b). Detailed motivation, methods and applications for the compiled data in Table 5 are provided in Peterson et al. (2020b). Future work on predicted SLR in the PNW region could benefit from data presented in this Document
