RESEARCH ON LARGE-SCALE COASTAL BEHAVIOUR

J.H.J. Terwindt, J.A. Battjes

Abstract


Large scale coastal behaviour (LSCB) regards the development of a certain coastal stretch (order tens of km's) in time (order decades). Knowledge of LSCB is still very limited. Three approaches for analysis of LSCB are distinguished with increasing complexity and necessary level of knowledge, viz. the geostatistical, the phenomenological and the modelling approach. Every approach has serious shortcomings to such an extent that predictions of LSCB are as yet impossible. Nevertheless it is necessary to develop a research strategy which may serve future studies on LSCB.
