Abstract: This report describes a study of coastal processes along the Atlantic Coast from Sea Bright to Ocean Township, New Jersey. Predictive tools were developed and a data analysis made to assist in evaluation and implementation of comprehensive shore protection plans for this highly utilized stretch of coastline. The study was divided into four broad areas as: (1) deepwater wave climate analysis aid nearshore wave refraction, (2) numerical modeling of long-term shoreline change, (3) numerical modeling of storm-induced beach erosion, and (4) development of stage-frequency relations for the back bay and ocean coast. A literature review of previous studies and results of the four tasks are given in Volume 1 of the report. Volume I1 contains Listings and interpretations of coastal processes data assembled in the study, including data on profiles, shoreline change, sediment sizes, and incident waves. The study represents an integrated attempt to quantitatively evaluate long and short-term coastal processes on a regional scale for use in engineering design.
