Palmsten, Margaret L.; Brodie, Katherine L.; Spore, Nicholas J.
Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is the second of two CHETNs focused on improving technologies to forecast coastal foredune evolution. Part 1 summarized the short-, meso-, and multi-decadal-timescale environmental factors and forcing processes that influence the morphodynamic evolution of coastal foredunes and described a number of observational studies. Part 2 summarizes the existing approaches used to model foredune evolution and provides a new probabilistic modeling framework that integrates hydrodynamic and Aeolian processes to forecast foredune evolution.
