Abstract

UAV is emerging to become a common tool in geoscience field as it is usableacross different field to cover a large-scale area with minimal cost. A low-cost UAV with lowaltitude platform is advantageous as it is not affected by cloud cover and easily operable whichallows frequent flight of the same area at low-cost. This is applicable in monitoring effects ofcoastal erosion and shoreline changes. Coastal erosion is recognized as a permanent loss of landand habitat along the shoreline resulting in changes of the coast. The shoreline is highlyvulnerable to erosion and flooding that can spawn negative impact on wellbeing of human,environment and ecosystem altogether. Hence, it is important to monitor shoreline changes byidentifying the rate of erosion and accretion to quantify the losses of land due to climate change.This research suggests the usage of DJI Phantom 3 Pro to monitor the shoreline changesphysically at Pantai Jeram. Sub nadir aerial images were taken from the UAV and flewalongshore at above ground level of 70 m. The research was conducted at different 2 months(June and September) in 2017 to observe the shoreline changes during different monsoonperiods. The result shows apparent changes of the shoreline in the west coast of Malaysiaproduced at high-resolution due to the images taken by the UAV at low-altitude which allowsthe analysis of the shoreline changes to be intricate. In Pantai Jeram, the result of 2-monthsobservation shows noticeable changes in erosion and accretion. The research shows that UAV isapplicable in monitoring shoreline changes along the coastal region which can be useful to assistthe authority in making decision on enforcing nature conservation strategy to the affected site.
