  • Alongshore variation in beach cusp morphology in a coastal embayment
  • Australia ; Beach cusp ; Coastal dynamics ; Coastal environment ; Model ; New South Wales ; Wave
  • The variation in beach cusp characteristics was examined along a 1 km long embayed beach (Pearl Beach, New South Wales, Australia), to test the edge wave model and the self-organization mechanism of beach cusp formation.

  • The climatic conditions of seven beach holiday resorts in South Africa (Alexander Bay, Cape Town, George, Port Elizabeth, East London, Durban and Richard's Bay) have been examined with regard to the thermal perception of beach holidays makers
  • . A model has been developed to calculate the missing radiation input data and parameters such as beach day and beach hour are introduced and defined. The Beach Comfort Index Map of South Africa shows the maximum, minimum and average number of beach days per
  • month and the probability of beach days and thus providing understandable and interpretable information on the thermal conditions of the sites from the point of view of beach holiday makers.
  • Factors influencing human beach choice on three South African beaches: a multivariate analysis
  • This paper investigates, by means of a questionnaire survey the factors influencing human beach choice on three beaches with different levels of development and whether respondents on the different beaches consider different characteristics
  • important on an ideal beach. By means of multiple discriminant analysis, visitors can be classified according to the beaches they are interviewed on, based solely on the different reasons for visiting them as well as on the characteristics they consider

  • This paper provides a detailed description of the development of a natural beach cusp system in Perth, Western Australia. Observations of the incident wave conditions, instantaneous shoreline and three-dimensional beach morphology were obtained over
  • a period of 6 days. The results obtained provide a clear insight into the morphodynamics of natural beach cusps.
  • Factors influencing beach erosion and accretion a global review in Sandy beaches as ecosystems.
  • It is necessary on each sector of sandy coastline to consider all the factors and to decide which have been dominant in producing beach erosion and accretion. The attempts to analyse the advance or retreat of sandy coastlines in terms of volumetric
  • budgeting will characterise the next phase of research into beach erosion and accretion.
  • Spatial and seasonal aspects of shoreline changes at Forcados Beach, Nigeria
  • This paper is an attempt to clarify the position with respect to a humid tropical situation by examining the spatial and temporal variation in beach erosion and accretion at Forcados Beach in Nigeria. The essence here is to be able to identify
  • the category in coastal dynamics to which beach changes at the study area can be ascribed.

  • Beach rocks are beach materials lithified above high tide level. The beach material will be cemented under the prevailing conditions of Mediterranean climate there. Before being cemented beach materials must have been wetted, and this process
  • is linked to rare oceanographic-climatic conditions, such as wind-tides lifting up the sea level and extending the swash zone landward. Under even these conditions beach rocks are destroyed by backswash and breakers, too. Formation and destruction of beach
  • rock occur at the same time. Periods of months, years or 10 years are required for beach rock formation, whereas beach rocks may be destroyed in periods of 10-10 years. The authors working on beach rock up to now agree beach rock to be an excellent
  • The provenance of beach sediments on Rhodes, southeastern Greece, indicated by sediment texture, composition and roundness
  • Beach ; Coastal dynamics ; Coastal environment ; Grain size distribution ; Greece ; Island ; Mineralogy ; Sediment transport ; Sedimentology ; Wave ; Wind
  • Nine different types of beaches were selected, on the basis of configuration (pocket beach or staight beach), profile (cliff, bluff or dunes), whether a river runs on to the beach or not, and the length of the fetches in the directions of prevailing
  • or predominant waves, as key areas for study of the transport and provenance of the beach sediments. The texture, composition, provenance, and transport of beach sediments and the roundness of sediment grains were studied with the purpose to throw light upon

  • The coast of Lebanon lends itself particulary well to the development of beach-rock, whatever the pluviometry, the nature of sediments, or the size of its constitutive elements. If the beach-rock does not appear in areas where the coastline
  • is stable, it is present where the coast is receding. Beach-rock does not originate in the material which composes the present beach, but in fossil marine deposits which may be several millenia old (Bronze Age, for example).

  • Beach-rocks of coastal beaches or of sand reef cays could be considered as witnesses: 1) of the coastal morphology, of the sedimentary conditions and of the altitudinal sea level| 2) of the wave-exposure. It's in this view that are analysed: 1
  • ) the fossilized organisms into the beach-rocks| 2) the organisms that could be fossilized or apt to leave a matrix or a print, that colonize beach-rocks when they are exposed and when they form hard-substrates.

  • Numerous examples all along the Mediterranean coastline show that beach-rock frequently originates inside soft fossil holocene marine deposits and is exposed only when the coast recedes. The present beach often hides it during the summer, thus
  • making it possible for a veil of sand to cement itself unconformably on the slabs of beach-rock. The phenomenon of receding coastlines being general in the Mediterranean, it is quite natural that beach-rock forms in this ancient sedimentary stock

  • In tropical regions beach-rock in the best tool for the study of the variations of sandy beach outlines during the last 6 000 years. In Madagascar, it is very frequent, especially in the coral reef areas. It provides possibilities to obtain data
  • concerning the evolution, often very complicated, of littoral spits, sand cays, and motu. Arrecifes, on the SE, S and SW coasts of Madagascar, are not Flandrian beach rocks, but probably contemporaneous with the post Eemian regression.

  • A l'issue du colloque sur le beach-rock, les participants ont élaboré la définition suivante: le beach-rock est une formation sédimentaire indurée sous l'effet d'une cimentation carbonatée, réalisée au niveau de l'étage médiolittoral. Il existe des
  • beach-rocks fossiles, situés à des altitudes supérieures ou au contraire inférieures au niveau actuel de la mer.
  • Beach-state controls on aeolian sand delivery to coastal dunes
  • Characteristics of morphodynamically reflective, intermediate, and dissipative beach systems, from the data of Short (1984), are used with an iterative aeolian sediment transport model to predict beach-state controls on transport rates.
