Equilibrium Beach Profiles: Prediction of Coastal Erosion Due to Severe Storms

by A. Swain,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85


This paper describes a method that calculates coastal erosion due to severe storms. The equilibrium beach profile concept used in this study was developed by Swart. The agreement between calculated erosion of sandy beaches under wave attack and the measured field data was good.
