Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This is the first report to describe the new shoreline change and sand transport model, GenCade. GenCade is based on the synthesis of GENESIS (Hanson and Kraus 1989), a project-scale, engineering design-level model, and Cascade (Larson et al. 2003), a regional-scale, planning-level model. This report describes GenCade model theory, model validation and benchmark cases. The first model validation was performed with data from an experiment conducted in the CHL Large-Scale Sediment Transport Facility while the second focuses on the Jucar River in Spain. A series of simple idealized cases was developed to demonstrate GenCade model capabilities and verify results against the established legacy model, GENESIS. Additionally, this report includes a user’s guide that describes the process of setting up and running GenCade. This section should include enough detail for a user with no previous GenCade experience to run a simple GenCade case. The report also describes a GenCade model application on the south shore of Long Island, New York. This report should give a new user enough information to understand the theory behind the model and create a grid and run a GenCade simulation.
