Short summary
The transition zone between land and water is difficult to map due to shallow water depth and often challenging environmental conditions. Airborne topobathymetric lidar is capable of providing both topographic and bathymetric elevation information, resulting in a seamless coverage of the land–water transition zone. We present the processing and performance of topobathymetric lidar data along with a geomorphometric and morphological classification of landforms in a high-energy tidal environment.
