The USGS National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards project aims to identify areas of the nation's coastline that are most vulnerable to extreme storms and long-term shoreline change. These assessments require coastal elevation data across diverse geographic regions and covering a time span of many years.

The beach studied in this paper spans a length of 51 km and is one of several long sandy beaches in the southern Bohai Strait.

Due to the obstruction of islands in the northeast and the influence of the underwater topography, the wave environment in the offshore area is complex; beach types and sediment transport characteristics vary along different by: 1. cOasTaL characTer and cOasTaL BarrIer evOLuTIOn In The Bras d’Or Lakes, nOva scOTIa* R.

True Grit: A New Vision For Healthy Beaches In Nova Scotia _____ Ecology Action Centre, December 1 1. ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT PURPOSE Along with many other groups, the Ecology Action Centre (EAC) has been working to raise awareness about Nova Scotia’s sensitive beach systems. Participation in workshops like the Coastal Coalition of.

Changes in the gradient of the beach between MHWS and MLWS were expressed in the form of the ‘Foreshore Change Classification system’ (Halcrow, ), shown in Appendix 2. Positive Foreshore Change Parameter (FCP) values indicate a beach system advancing seaward and negative values show a system retreating landwards.

Seasonal change in beach morphology is traditionally ascribed to a variation in the incident wave energy level with calm conditions in summer resulting in wide beaches with pronounced subaerial.

The main drivers of change in coastal geomorphology are geological structural resistance, changes in sea level, long-shore currents and storm surges.

These factors are responsible for both coastal erosion and accumulation, as well as for the emergence and variability of beaches. Coastal protection measures are major factors at the local scale.

The beach has been threatened by moderate but continued erosion since the early 20th century because of diversion of rivers to reclaim coastal lagoons carried out in the 19th century (Bartolini et al., ).Construction of shore protection structures (mostly detached breakwaters and some groins) began along the Gulf of Follonica in the s, frequently increasing erosion on the adjacent Cited by: 3.

It's a zigzag movement of sediment that results in a general downwind displacement (because most waves are generated by wind). Coastal morphodynamics (i.e. the dynamics of beach morphology) refers to the study of the interaction and adjustment of the seafloor topography and fluid hydrodynamic processes, seafloor morphologies and sequences of change dynamics involving the motion of sediment.

Hydrodynamic processes include those of waves, tides and wind-induced currents.
