ADVANCES IN NUMERICAL MODELING OF DUNE EROSION

David L. Kriebel

Abstract


Estimating dune erosion during severe storm events continues to be a major coastal engineering problem. In the United States, for example, numerous state and federal regulatory programs now require an estimate of the erosion caused by the 100-year hurricane or extratropical storm. In addition, most beach replenishment projects include storm protection berm and dune systems that must be sized to survive some design storm event.
