Description: Miscellaneous paper
Abstract: This report summarizes the results of an office study of the magnitude of short-term (less than two years) beach profile changes at several locations along the U. S. East Coast, Gulf Coast, West Coast, and Lake Michigan Coast. Typical maximum sand- level change values ranged from 4 to 8 feet. A maximum short-term sand-level change was slightly less than 15 feet. A brief field experiment at a pile-supported pier documented scour that was approximately 10 feet below the original sea bed.
