This paper summarizes the development of a computer model for determining potential beach and dune erosion along the Florida Panhandle. The results have been used as a guide in delineating flood hazard zones in this area. The model is written in FORTRAN 77 for operation on a Data General MV/8000 minicomputer. Profile data required for the model is digitized using a Lexidata Model 2410 Graphics Display System.
