CHANGES IN THE COASTAL MORPHOLOGY OF VRACHATI, GREECE

C.I. Moutzouris, A.J. Rogan

Abstract


The coastal morphology of Vrachati, which lays on the southeastern coast of the Corinthiakos Gulf, has considerably changed since the construction of two successive coastal structures. The present paper describes these changes and attempts to estimate the rate of longshore drifting sediment load. The description of the changes and the estimation of the rate are based on observations of aerial photographs of the area and on extensive bottom sediment sampling.
