Cliff erosion below the house shown in the previous image became more rapid in 2017. Small Unmanned Aerial Systems, or sUAS (also known as drones), documented significant short-term (episodic) erosion and undercutting of the cliff. The group's research documented that episodic events such as heavy rains dominate the overall erosion process: rather than proceeding at a steady, linear rate, cliff loss happens quickly, punctuating the long-term process of erosion.
