Abstract
    Linear referencing is a technique provided by GIS. It supplies tools that help in dealing with data associated with any kind of linear features. In recent years dense algal mats covering the shoreline and algal blooms in the Baltic region became a serious problem and create much concern. The linear referencing technique was used to analyse the dynamic process of organic material deposition along the shoreline. Sampling was done nine times along the sandy beach of Gdańsk - Sopot - Gdynia. The total amount of algal debris washed ashore varied a lot each time and on average was 252.64 tons ±220.97 tons. The linear referencing technique proved to serve well in dealing with processes occurring along any feature that may/can be treated as linear.
