Abstract: A quantitative sediment budget analysis was made for the shoreline segment extending from 4 miles north to 4 miles south of Oceanside Harbor using a calibrated shoreline change model. Hindcast wave information, measured shoreline positions, historical beach nourishment volumes, and sand discharges from rivers for the period 1964 to 1974 were used in calibration of the model. Modeling results quantified effects of variability in wave climate and allowed objective evaluation of sand management practices.
