Description :
One of the primary objectives of coastal research is the erection and testing of mechanically sound, predictive models for the two- and three-dimensional form of beach and nearshore bathymetries in order to account for and to predict coastal response to changing wave, tidal and sea-level conditions. An alternative is developed here in which frequency domain representations of a simplified set of process and response algorithms are presented, so that hydrodynamic, sediment dynamic and geomorphological parameters are related by a simple series of spectral gain functions.
