    Sand dunes are common features of shoreline and desert environments. Dunes provide habitat for highly specialized plants and animals, including rare and endangered can protect beaches from erosion and recruit sand to eroded beaches. Dunes are threatened by human activity, both intentional and unintentional. Erosion of Connecticut’s Beaches and Dunes Beaches and dunes are dynamic coastal features and are affected by short and long term changes in waves, wind, tides, storm surge, sand availability and sea level rise. These changes may be seasonal, episodic or storm-related, or slow, barely noticeable.

    This type of coastal erosion management has been adopted all over the world in order to preserve and protect. An example of this is at Mount Maunganui beach in the North Island of New Zealand which had been experiencing erosion, resulting in coastal dune retreat of almost 20 m. When ongoing dredging at the entrance to the Tauranga Harbour began.   Many beaches along the Pacific Northwest coast have experienced increased erosion since the late s. So says the U.S. Geological Survey, which is working with Oregon .

    The erosion models include a geometric model, an equilibrium profile model, and a wave impact model. We discuss the assumptions required to implement each model and force them with hydrodynamic conditions associated with a large-scale laboratory dune erosion experiment and a major winter storm approximately equivalent to the yr return period. Methodologies have been developed to establish setback distances for use on the coast of the Pacific Northwest where the principal hazards are wave runup and surge during major storms, and El Ninos that produce unusually high tides and the northward movement of beach sand within littoral cells, creating "hot spot" erosion sites.

Application of beach and dune erosion models to the high-energy Oregon Coast by Paul D. Komar Download PDF EPUB FB2

Coastal erosion is a natural process that continually affects the Oregon coast. Erosion becomes a hazard when human development or public safety is threatened.

Beaches, sand spits, dunes, and bluffs are constantly affected by waves, currents, tides, and storms, resulting in chronic erosion, landslides, and flooding.

Morphologies of Beaches and Dunes on the Oregon Coast, with Tests of the Geometric Dune-Erosion Model the ORegOn cOast: setting and eROsiOn pROcesses There are advantages in undertaking the tests of the geometric dune-erosion model on the Oregon coast.

The Froude-scaled physical model study ( Three scenarios were used to model erosion hazard zones on dune-backed beaches: o Scenario 1 (HIGH risk). Although the application here is to the Oregon coast, the model can be used on other. The beach erosion caused by storm waves has been simulated with the XBeach model (Roelvink et al., ).

XBeach is an open-source numerical model developed to simulate morphodynamic processes caused by high-energy wave conditions. The model solves phase-averaged coupled equations for cross-shore and longshore hydro and morphodynamics.

Oregon coast were used to build the beach profile w predicting beach and dune erosion has improved in the last three decades, but the recovery of an eroded beach above the mean sea level (MSL.

The impact of wind erosion is Dune grading along the Oregon coast, USA KarS F.\ordsirom considered minor according to the state study because the plan requires use of vegetation to stabilize newly created bare areas (State of Oregon ).

van der Meulen. Delft Hydraulics Laboratory, Netherlands. CORVALLIS, Ore. - A new assessment of shoreline change along the Pacific Northwest coast from the late s to present found that while the majority of beaches are stable or slightly accreting (adding sand), many Oregon beaches have experienced an increase in erosion hazards in recent decades.

A sand beach of mm diameter was constructed over 76 m of the tank, utilizing approximately metric tons of beach sand trucked in from the Oregon coast. The instrumentation in the tank included wave gages, current meters, pressure gauges, video cameras, and sediment concentration gauges to measure the hydrodynamics, and beach and dune.

Existing coastal change hazard zones in Oregon (e.g., Allan and Priest ) were developed deterministically with an event-selection approach that includes an assessment of the TWL and the application of a simple geometric dune erosion model (Komar et al.

Recently, the model has been applied to natural beaches and storm conditions to determine the generality of the model formulation (Johnson et al., in press). Although the CSHORE model has a defensible physical basis, dependence on.

Six common beach settings representative of those along the California, Oregon, and Washington coastlines are addressed in these guidelines: 1. Sandy beach backed by a low sand berm or high sand dune formation 2. Sandy beach backed by shore protection structures 3.A probabilistic model has been developed to analyze the susceptibilities of coastal properties to wave attack.

Using an empirical model for wave runup, long term data of measured tides and waves are combined with beach morphology characteristics to determine the frequency of occurrence of sea cliff and dune erosion along the Oregon coast.
