The physical impacts of selected sea level rise scenarios on the shoreline of Sea Bright, New Jersey, are investigated. The sea level rise scenarios chosen for investigation were developed by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency. Increases in shoreline recession and coastal flooding that would occur as sea level rises are predicted. Using the recession predictions, the quantity of sand necessary to maintain a design beach with a specified berm width is estimated.
