Abstract: Part I of this paper consists of a study of the Danish North Sea coast. The following factors are included: a. Coastline development. b. Development of beach profiles, including comparison for different wind/wave conditions. c. Coast erosion and quantity of littoral drift. d. Forecasting the future development of shore line and beach profiles on the basis of these investigations. Depth soundings since 1874 on the Lime Inlet Barriers on the Danish North Sea Coast are used and treated statistically. In this way the development of the Lime Inlet Barriers and adjacent coasts is explained. Part II consists of a study of the Mission Bay, California area. It includes study of: a. Development of beach profiles, including comparison for different wave ccnditions. b. Seasonal fluctuations of beach profiles. c. Comparison of Danish and California data.
