Erosion Rate, Setback Factors, Erosion
These data represent North Carolina's first Oceanfront Setback Factors and Ocean Erodible Area - Area of Environmental Concern (OEA-AEC) study (results from the 1979 Erosion Rate Study). These polygons DO NOT represent the actual Ocean Erodible Area (OEA) boundaries as these landward limits are dynamic and can potentially change from day-to-day; the landward limit of these polygons are arbitrary. The OEA associated with each polygon is a distance to be measured from a vegetation line to be determined by NC DCM staff or authorized local permitting official (LPO).
