Abstract

The Schleswig-Holstein (SH) Baltic Sea coast consists of different morphological features (e.g., bars, beaches, dunes, cliffs), which are continuously shaped by various along- and cross-shore sediment transport patterns driven by local currents generated from tides, seiches, winds and waves (Soomere et al., 2012). Understanding local scale sediment transport is of utmost importance to manage the scarce coastal sediments and to identify suitable mitigation strategies against extreme forcing scenarios (Hofstede and Hamann, 2022). This investigation was carried out at the exemplary cliff coast at Stohl, at which the glacial till cliff (maximum height about 20 m) is the source of nearshore sediments (Averes et al., 2021). The main objective of this study is to investigate the relative importance of different forcing conditions on local sediment transport pathways.
