Abstract: Abstract: Panama City is a heavily developed coastal resort community located on the Florida panhandle which is prone to hurricane and coastal storm damages. This study established a procedure for analyzing short-term storm-induced beach erosion and flooding for the with- and without-project conditions. Storm-induced water level and wave height, period, and direction were numerically modeled for 55 storms representing historical or probable storm events. Beach profile response was then numerically modeled using SBEACH, resulting in a determination of beach recession, wave height, and water level at the shore associated with each storm. Finally, a statistical analysis of the storm and beach response data was performed for use in quantifying benefits associated with the different beach fill alternatives.
