WAVE TRANSFORMATION PATTERNS AT A NON-TIDAL, DISSIPATIVE BEACH

Antonios Valsamidis, Grzegorz Różyński, Dominic Reeve

Abstract


In this study, the statistical method of the Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA) was applied in order to gain insight into the interaction of nearshore wave climate and the morphological evolution of the seabed at Lubiatowo beach in Poland. Lubiatowo, a non-tidal, sandy beach characterized by multiple longshore bars (Figure 1) is typical of Southern Baltic coasts. In the past, this method has also been used in the coastal field by Larson et al. (2000). Rozinsky (2003) also used the CCA to find a correlation between components of a multibar system and the interaction between the multiple longshore bars. Elsewhere, Horrillo-Caraballo and Reeve (2008), examined the performance of CCA-based at Duck (USA).
