Modelling the effect of waves, weathering and beach development on shore platform development

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A mathematical model was used to study shore platform development. In addition to mechanical wave erosion, this model considers the effect of a number of other important factors, including platform downwearing by weathering, the abrasive and protective effects of beach sediment accumulation, and variable cliff height and debris mobility. The primary goal of this study was to examine how these interacting factors influence the development of shore platforms in different environments, rather than to replicate the morphology of platforms after specific periods of time
