Abstract: The U.S. Army of Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, and the Florida Department of Enviromental Protection are co-sponsors of a study to evaluate the coastal processes along the shores of the state. This evaluation includes measurements and modeling. Hindcast wave information is compared to measurements at two sites off the south east coast and found to accurately represent the wave climate during 1990. The wave information is used to estimate along shore sand transport and shoreline change. Net transport estimates agree with values generally accepted to characterize and transport along this segment of coastline.
