Clatsop Sandy Shore



   

About the Clatsop Sandy Shore

Here identified as the Clatsop littoral cell, this sandy 22 mile segment of Oregon's coastal shoreline extends from mileage the Columbia River South Jetty to Tillamook Head. It is associated with the Columbia and Necanicum rivers mouth(s) and accompanying Columbia and Necanicum River Estuaries.

The Clatsop sandy shore lies within Clatsop County and makes up the shoreline fronting the communities of Seaside, Gearhart and Warrenton. It consists of Dune Backed and Inlet Affected shoreline. Of this shoreline approximately 40.4% is urban and 63.6% is park. An unknown percentage of this stretch of sandy shoreline is hardened with shore protection structures. Predominant land uses include those typical of urban, ruralsettings.

Chronic coastal hazards for the Clatsop sandy shore include ocean flooding and erosion, inlet migration and sand inundation. Catastrophic hazards include earthquakes, and the groundshaking, subsidence, landsliding, liquefaction, and tsunami that accompany them.

Key recreational facilities and cultural features include: Fort Stevens State Park and the Seaside Promenade.
