ONELINE, A NUMERICAL MODEL FOR SHORELINE CHANGE

Mohamed Dabees, J. WIlliam Kamphuis

Abstract


This paper describes the latest revision of the Queen's University coastal morphology model ONELINE. The model provides practical and reliable full, timedependent simulations of shoreline change for coasts controlled by structures and complex boundary conditions. ONELINE calculates shoreline change due to longshore sediment differentials as well as on-offshore sediment movements. Model tests and case studies from around the world were conducted to test ONELINE's capabilities. Two case studies for Sea Isle City beach, New Jersey, and along the Nile Delta Coast in Egypt are discussed in this paper. Results are compared with observed field measurements to examine the model capabilities.
