Asked in Florida, Definitions, The Difference Between
What is the difference between 'coastline' and 'shoreline'?
There is none. There is, in fact a difference, although minuscule. Shoreline refers to the edge of the shore, the shore being the stretch of dry land just before a body of water. Basically, where the beach ends. The shoreline is flexible and changes with the tides. The coastline is often used to refer to the shoreline, but in a more technical sense is the boundary where the continent ends. This is not the shoreline, but the end of the continental plate, usually referred to as the Drop-Off (remember 'Finding Nemo'?). This can be a couple hundred yards from shore, several miles, or at the shore, if something has recently broken off or there was an earthquake. Coastline is really the boundary of the continent while the shoreline is the boundary of the land. Another new answer Coastline ALWAYS refers to land/water boundary of continental entities. Shoreline refers to land/water boundaries of ANY sort i.e. rivers, lakes, seas, oceans where land gives way to water of some sort.

Asked in Michigan, Coastlines, Lake Michigan
How many miles of shoreline does Michigan have?
Almost half of Michigan is comprised of water and, except for Alaska, Michigan has more shoreline than any other state, fronting four of the Great Lakes: Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Erie. With 3,177 miles of Great Lakes shoreline it is easy to see why Michigan boasts a thriving recreational industry, and leads the nation with approximately one million registered pleasure boats. The state of Michigan's revised figure is 3,052 miles of Great Lakes shoreline - 2,147 miles for mainland and 905 (revised) miles for islands. In addition, rivers that connect Great Lakes add another 85 miles of mainland shoreline and 151 (revised) miles of island shoreline in Michigan. The grand total is 3,288 miles of shoreline for the lakes and connecting rivers.

Does Canada or the US have more land touching the Arctic Ocean?
Canada because it is coloser to the north pole. and i learned it in social studies class. There are different ways of measuring coastline, different opinions on where one ocean starts and another ends and different countries have different ideas about who owns what. Bearin all this in mind: The USA has 1060 Statute miles of general Arctic coastline and 2521 of tidal shoreline. According to National Centre for Arctic Aquatic Research Excellence (NCAARE), Canada's Arctic coastline is in excess of 162,000 km - representing twice as much coastline as the Atlantic and Pacific coasts combined. Canada has responsibility for close to one fourth of the world's Arctic. So it looks like no contest whichever way you choose to measure it. Canada has much more land touching the Arctic Ocean than the US.
