Iht study is helpful in bringing out the qualitative and quantitative changes of the beach under varying wave and tide conditions. Useful information is obtained and presented regarding i) the maximum rate of erosion 11) the total quantity of material eroded iii) the critical wave steepness values which changed from depositing to eroding nature and iv) the sediment characteristics of the beach.
