Abstract or Summary
  • Successful prediction of nearshore sediment migration is important in determining the vulnerability of a coastline. During energetic wave climates (storm events) sediment rapidly erodes from beaches and is deposited offshore. In subsequent milder wave conditions, the sediment migrates shoreward, accreting on the beach and helping to protect the coastline. It is well understood that beaches undergo temporal variations on many scales (daily, seasonally, annually, etc.). However, predictions of the nature of beaches remain poor because the processes which govern the variability of the nearshore hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics are not yet understood well.
