LONG-TERM MODELLING OF AEOLIAN TRANSPORT AND BEACH-DUNE EVOLUTION

Abstract
A model to simulate long-term beach-dune evolution due to interacting longshore and cross-shore sediment transport processes is developed and tested. The work builds on a cross-shore model (CSM) previously developed at Lund University and includes changes to the equations describing aeolian transport and morphological evolution. The modifications are mainly based on existing conceptual geomorphological models which are translated into a numerical model, dealing with aeolian transport rates, transport limiting factors, and dune evolution under positive, negative, or stable beach sediment budgets. CSM is tested against a seven year data set of morphological evolution and sediment
grain-size samples from Ängelholm Beach, Sweden. Results... (More)
