Therefore ALS data of various vintages may already be accessible for regions of interest. Monitoring of coastal 2. Airborne laser scanning processes using ALS data has already been carried out, e. In ALS the scanning device is placed on an aircraft, e. ALS is cost- This study attempts to widen the applicability and enhance effective in applications where large areas need to be covered, the quality of standard ALS data products by using in situ TLS for example measuring ground surfaces for compilation of data for minimizing systematic errors between ALS and TLS terrain models, infrastructure objects, etc.
Generally, an ALS datasets from different epochs. It been used, for example, to quantify the sediment volume usually varies from 0. Acquiring more high-resolution data requires more . We explore the potential of the joint use of the TLS time, flight hours and therefore more funds. The goal is to characterize not only the aircraft at any instant, a Global Navigation Satellite System overall intensity of coastal processes but also to shed light to GNSS receiver and an Inertial Measurement Unit IMU are the changes in the internal structure of the beach, in particular used.
GNSS receiver records the position and IMU the pitch, to identify whether the most representative parts of the beach roll and yaw of the aircraft. Since the calculation involves gain or lose sediment. The means of elimination of systematic m, the divergence of the laser beam is much more and random errors of the ALS and TLS, creating and pronounced and the beam can reach up to a meter in diameter comparing of the resulting Digital Terrain Models DTM of in ground surface.
This means that capturing very fine details test areas from scanning point clouds are discussed next. The is impossible and measurement errors are more likely to occur.
First of all, in applications where the desired accuracy and data resolution are that of Laser scanning is a remote sensing method which utilizes characteristic to TLS, ALS does not meet the expected laser pulses to measure distances to objects. Based on these demands. Also given the relatively large differences in spatial distances and the angles of laser beams, the coordinates of resolution, the methods for data processing have to be slightly measured points are calculated.
This results in a 3D point altered. Additionally, combining different laser scanning methods and campaigns raises problems of accuracy. The main issue is how to ensure that the datasets are aligned to each other and determine whether systematic errors are present between them.
Unifying point clouds from different campaigns could be accomplished by finding distinguishable points in both point clouds and moving one of the clouds to the correct location.
Unfortunately, ALS data is usually not dense enough to Figure 2. Location scheme of Pirita Beach in Tallinn Bay. Therefore, it is necessary to detect and quantify the systematic the scarp of the coastal forest was covered by an about 0.
A total volume of 30 m3 with a typical The systematic error of elevation can be determined by grain size of 0. Such reference surfaces e.
By comparing the elevation differences between references therein. As the grain size of this sand volume was the same surface measured by TLS and ALS campaigns, the considerably smaller than the native sand, a large volume was extent of the systematic error can be determined.
Points near probably relatively rapidly in a few years transported into the edge of the surface should be discarded to minimize the deeper areas. For example, a recession of the scarp at the northern end of the beach, and part of the ALS pulse might reflect from a curbstone instead extensive storm damage to the coastal forest have continued of the pavement. The larger the reference surface area the . Although alterations of natural conditions such as an better is the accuracy and reliability of linking of the ALS and increase in storminess in the s  may have caused TLS measurements.
For example, construction of Pirita Harbor bayhead of Tallinn Bay, Estonia, is a typical small, embayed substantially decreased the supply of river sand.
The largest beach of the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland Fig. The sediment transport processes along the beach are presented in length of the sandy area is about 2 km and the dunes are ,.
The wave climate in the vicinity of the beach is relatively low: The average net loss of sand The stability of Pirita Beach has been discussed for several from the entire beach was estimated to be in the range of decades see , and references therein. Several attempts to the beach whereas no prevailing transport direction exists in refill the beach with material dredged from a neighboring the southern sections.
Consequently, different sections of the harbor or transported from mainland quarries were undertaken beach may have different level of erosion or accretion. The beach up to m, elevation up to 2 m above the mean water test area is entirely located within a single flight corridor level and the total sand volume has increased.
This tendency Fig. ALS The changes are marked northwards from the mouth of a small stream about m to the north of Pirita The TLS survey was conducted with a pulse-based Leica Harbor see its location in Fig. The beach survey was performed from — The most intense erosion occurred at the six scanning stations Fig.
For future surveys, nine interface between the sandy and till coasts at the northern end reference points were established near the beach Fig. The heights of the points transport and erosion and deposition patterns, the central area were determined with respect to a nearby located levelling of the beach in the vicinity of the above-mentioned stream benchmark.
Also, this area possibly has variable erosion and accumulation patterns and was selected as test region for this study.
The Estonian Land Board also performed the ground filtering and classification of the measured points. In this Figure 3. Flight corridors hatch of different ALS campaigns. Note a Figure 4. The reference points numbered green circles and TLS stations match between the location of the , and flight corridors. Reference points , , , and were The studied beach area and the parking lot used as a reference surface measured with GNSS Reference point no. This surface has been changeless i.
The reference surface was measured with TLS using reference points that were linked to points located at the beach. Doing so improved the accuracy of the process of detection of deformations of the beach surface. Figure 5. The profile in the centre of the test area matches profile No.

The resulting DTMs constructed from ALS make it location of the waterline and the volume of sediment present possible to highlight relatively long-term changes within exactly along the profile. However, making strong — whereas a comparison of similar results from the conclusions from the described behavior may not be justified.
Finally, the ALS data from different years enable neighbouring cross-sections located about 70 m to the south us to recognize an interesting shift in the nature of changes to the beach around the year Single profiles 2 Elevation [m] The study area is an about m long strip in the central part of the beach Fig. This area contains one coastal profile No. Data for this profile, available for the years of — Fig. Although certain fluctuations occurred in the exact position of Figure 6.
Beach profile No. Data courtesy of the the beach surface and the zero-height line, none of these Geological Survey of Estonia. These changes have clear structure along both profiles. As 0 mentioned above, the changes at the distance of 0—10 m from their beginning may not be particularly reliable but still a -1 certain loss of sand from the northern segment of the study 3 10 20 30 40 50 areas characterized by this section of profile 3.
Profile 3 Further down to the waterline, at a distance of 10—25 m from Elevation [m] 2 the beginning, the beach has kept its shape in — but 1 has considerably lost sand in Its height has decreased by about 30 cm, which means the loss approximately 3 m3 per 0 meter of the coastline during this year.
Although a part of this -1 difference may stem from inexact match of the ALS and TLS 3 10 20 30 40 50 data, it is likely that this section of the beach had negative Profile 3. This loss has been only partially 2 compensated by an accumulation in the vicinity of waterline 1 ALS 25—30 m from the beginning. This match of -1 accumulation with the one for profile 3 and with Fig.
Figure 7. Beach profiles see the location in Fig. This profile information about the nature and course of the changes to the demonstrates rapid changes along its entire subaerial length.
Profile 3 in Fig. This material was almost totally portrayed in Fig. The data at a distance of 0—10 m from the eroded in — A minor accumulating section in the starting points of each profile are affected by the particular TLS data in the immediate vicinity of the waterline may flying line and height of the plane carrying the ALS device. The match of TLS and ALS for relevant density of the point cloud was lower in and the along this profile suggests that the differences between scarp is evidently not properly reflected in the data.
The end 2. Spatial changes of the scanned profile depends on the instantaneous location As we are interested in the capacity of the ALS and TLS of the waterline that may vary by 10—20 m depending on the techniques to highlight and identify changes to beaches, we water level during the scan. This differences between the segments to the north and south of the match inter alia once more confirms the reliability of the TLS stream mouth Fig. The entire study area gained sand with and ALS data for changes to the subaerial beach.
Given the total The overall original shape of the beach in was scanned area of about m2, the used technique is thus moderately convex signaling a relatively healthy situation. Erosion was observed only in a few spots about noted also above.
The above discussion suggests that this may reflect see the right panel of Fig. Most likely, the sediment volume caused by the small stream. The Figure 9. The different in these intervals. In terms of visually observed wave accumulation of sand was relatively rapid and homogeneus heights, the years — were relatively mild and the year along and across the entire southern segment. The height of relatively stormy. The annual mean for these years at the beach typically increased by 20—30 cm cf.
It mostly occurred in the landward part of the beach. It is thus is therefore likely that in — relatively mild wave likely that most of the accumulation here was driven by conditions with a comparatively large proportion of swells aeolian transport.
As mentioned above, a few areas of generated by typical south-westerly storms in the open Baltic decrease in the height of the beach in the central part of the Sea and the western Gulf of Finland dominated the coastal segment apparently reflect local smoothing of the beach processes in Pirita Beach and were favourable for recovery of surface. The autumn was stormy and the ice period started Fig. The later than usual. Several strong wave storms affected not only entire study area lost sand.
Only a small vicinity of the stream the open Baltic Sea  but also the Gulf of Finland . The amount of lost sand single wave in the Gulf of Finland was recorded near Helsinki per meter of coastline was almost constant along the study in a storm that repeated the all-time highest significant wave area.
Differently from the years —, the changes to height in this bay . Although the latter storm blew from the beach height were distributed unevenly along the beach the east, it is likely that Pirita Beach was frequently impacted cross-section. The loss was largest in the landward part of the by severe and destructive wave conditions in — Although the ALS measured changes.
This structure is characteristic to severe data may have relatively large uncertainty in the immediate wave conditions superposed with high local water level.
In vicinity of the coastal scarp near the forest, it is still likely that such situations waves erode unprotected sediment relatively the loss of beach height was unevenly distributed across the far from the coastline here in the vicinity of the coastal beach.
Only in a few locations in the middle of the northern segment has the beach lost almost 50 cm of height. As discussed above, areas of loss likely characterize local changes and are not representative of overall coastal processes. The overall pattern of changes in the almost six years covered by the laser scanning data coincides with the common understanding of the nature of coastal processes and sand movement at Pirita Beach. As alongshore transport in the northern section of the beach is almost unidirectionally to the south  and sand sources in the north are quite limited, it is expected that the northern sections of the beach suffer more severely from sediment deficit and are more prone to erosion that the southern sections.
Consistent with this conjecture, Fig. This difference is also exemplified in coast and usually is deposited within the equilibrium beach profiles Fig. For the VI. Additional to the variations of the overall course regular swells within a short period of time. The characterize the nature of the changes and to provide crucial proportions of the eroding and accumulation regions are information about whether the beach is losing sand or almost equal. The largest accumulation rates are in the recovering.
These few small patches of accumulation around demonstrates one of the major shortcomings of classical the stream are evidently connected with a relocation of the coastal monitoring activities. As they largely rely on the stream and filling the stream bed with sand from adjacent observed changes along a few profiles, the credibility of the locations.
