The New Jersey Beach Profile Network (NJBPN) consists of 171 beach profile sites along the entire New Jersey shoreline, including the Raritan and Delaware Bays. The profile sites are spaced approximately one mile apart, with at least one site located in each oceanfront municipality. The dune, beach, and nearshore are surveyed at each profile site twice a year (fall and spring), and analyzed for seasonal and multiyear changes in shoreline position and sand volume. Survey data and photographic records have been collected at most of these site since 1986.
