SYSTEMATIC MEASUREMENTS ALONG THE DUTCH COAST

T. Edelman

Abstract


Since more than a century some features of the Dutch beach have been measured systematically* Some characteristics of the coast, which could be derived from these valuable series of data, are discussed in this paper. Since 1963 a new and largely extended program of measurements has been established, that will produce, every year, more than one million of numbers. It is hardly possible to handle such a huge quantity of data in the conventional manner; mechanical handling by means of modern computers becomes necessary. A short description is given how this is done and how it will perhaps be done in the near future.

Keywords
