Details

The Shingle Beach Transport Project grew from the recognition that numerical model development should not proceed without a database of quality field measurements that confirmed fundamental processes and could provide verification of predictions. Although field data are available from a number of sources, the measurements are not co-ordinated or directed towards the specific requirements of model development. The Project was proposed with the stated aims of developing improved techniques for the prediction of beach transport and long term morphological development where coarse grained sediment forms a significant proportion of the beach material.
