FIELD TESTS ON TWO PERMEABLE GROYNES

W.A. Price, K.W. Tomlinson, D.H. Willis

Abstract


A section of beach on the south coast of England has been under surveillance for five years, from March 1966 until March 1971. During this period, two permeable groynes of the Makepeace Wood type were constructed. Beach cross sectional areas and rates of accretion were compared before and after groyne construction. The groynes caused a buildup in beach levels updrift.
