Abstract

Beach erosion is often associated with sea-level rise, sediment depletion or variation in wave conditions| however above-normal rainfall can cause beach retreat by increasing water-table elevation on the fore-shore. On Stanwell Park beach (New South Wales) annual rainfall accounts for 12,4 % of the variance in the long term, high tide position measured accurately to 2.5 m for the whole beach using 135 oblique photographs dated between 1895-1980. Sea level changes account for an additional 4.6 %.
