A NEW APPROACH OF COASTAL CLIFF MONITORING USING MOBILE LASER SCANNING
The article proposes a new approach of coastal cliff monitoring which bases on a new comprehensive monitoring system, being a combination of mobile scanning from the sea with the geotechnical stability analysis. Mobile laser scanning is an innovative solution for 3D data collection which allows the monitored object geometry to be precisely measured, thus providing opportunities for series of analyses contributing to the development of an improved monitoring system. The authors present selected cliff profiles obtained from mobile scanning in the area of Jastrzebia Gora, complemented by relevant geotechnical analyses. The analysis of current cliff geometry is accompanied by calculations of hypothetical cliff profile changes resulting from possible action of nature forces. Finally, a comprehensive strategy for coastal cliff monitoring is proposed.
