ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF EROSION VOLUME ON CROSS-SHORE SEDIMENT MOVEMENT AT PROTOTYPE SCALE

K. Uliczka, H.H. Dette

Abstract


In order to estimate erosion of sand beaches attacked by storm surges, experiments at prototype scale are necessary, since small scale models do not reproduce physical processes in the surf zone. The present study describes the influence of erosion volume on crossshore sediment movement during the development of beach profile. The discussion includes parameters which affect the erosion volume and the accuracy of assessment.

Keywords


prototype scale; crossshore transport; sediment transport; erosion volume
