With your mobile device and our CoastSnap photo cradles, you can capture a valuable record of the beach state, and share it with the hashtags on Facebook and InstaGram or email. Using your snaps, we are building a community database that provides new insights on beach response to changing weather and wave conditions, and extreme storms. Over time, your CoastSnaps will record erosion and recovery cycles, and any long-term changes, helping us understand why some beaches are more dynamic or resilient than others.
CoastSnap was created by researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia and can now be found in 22 countries around the world.
