Abstract

As anthropogenic use of the coastal zone diversifies, for example marine energy extraction, the coastal environments of interest to coastal engineers and managers is becoming more varied. Increasingly, the morphodynamics of geomorphologically complex, mixed sediment and geologically constrained beaches are important. Even in areas where erosion and inundation risk is low, understanding of changes to morphodynamics is important to inform ecological studies for environmental impact assessments.
