Abstract
This paper introduces new method for simulating shoreline change from multiSAR data. Edge detection algorithm such as Canny algorithm is implemented to identify shoreline. Automatic detection of sequence of shoreline derived from historical multiSAR data (ERS1 and RADARSAT1 SAR data) used to estimate rate of shoreline change. In addition, velocity bunching model used to model the spectral energy of ocean waves from multiSAR data. Then, rate of shoreline is simulated by using velocity bunching model. The study shows that: the maximum rate of erosion is 3.0 m/year along the coastal water of Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia. There is significant relationship between shoreline change rate estimated using Canny algorithm and ones modeled using velocity bunching model. The significant relationship is shown by high value of R2 of 0.77.
