AbstractJapan's coasts is being suffered by significant erosion. There is already a high demand to protect coasts from the erosion but climate change threatens further erosion. Udo and Takeda (2017) projected future beach loss in Japan due to sea-level rise using Bruun rule. However, its restrictive assumption that they probably do not exist in nature makes difficult to assess uncertainties of the projection results. In this paper, Cross-shore (CS) model developed by Larson et al. (2016), which is more realistic model considering the cross-shore sediment exchange, is applied to calibrate the parameter settings at Hasaki beach in Japan, and model applicability was evaluated.
