An integral aspect of the Coast of California Storm and Tidal Waves Study (CCSTWS) was the implementation of a four year comprehensive regional coastal zone monitoring program in 1983. This program focuses on the San Diego Region of the southern California coastline from Dana Point to the Mexican Border. The regional monitoring program will provide a set of baseline conditions for the southern California littoral zone on which to base future engineering and planning studies and decisions.
