Abstract

Nearshore morphology models predicting storm-scale erosion have been in use for the past several decades. These empirical tools typically focus on a single time-scale, which limits the utilization. For example, models developed to predict cross-shore storm erosion are poorly suited for longer-term simulations that include the beach recovery between events and gradients in longshore transport. Herein, the one-dimensional model CSHORE is extended to include shoreline change associated with along- shore variation in transport. A comparison of model predictions with long-term shoreline data from South Carolina demonstrate reasonable agreement with both erosion and accretion.
