Abstract

Long-term shoreline changes of a cuspate foreland behind Okinoshima Island located in Tateyama Bay were investigated, and a beach survey was carried out using an RTK-GPS on May 2, 2018. Then, numerical simulation of the formation and deformation of a cuspate foreland between 1941 and 2012 was carried out using the BG model (a model for predicting 3-D beach changes based on Bagnold's concept). It was found that sand, which was deposited on the shallow sea associated with the increase in ground level during the Kanto Great Earthquake that occurred in 1923, accumulated to form a cuspate foreland.
