Abstract

This paper describes multidecadal-scale beach changes in the 27-km long Zuma littoral cell, southern California, over 75 years (1928-2002) and suggests explanations based on ocean-climate forcing and other factors. The methods involve selection of 8 target beaches and measurement of changes in beach width from vertical aerial photographs obtained at irregular intervals between 1928 and 2002, supported by archival studies, repeat field surveys and statistical analysis. The results have important implications for coastal management at decadal time-scales
