A five-year dataset of Argus-derived mean intertidal positions has been analysed to characterize the shoreface variability in the artificial embayed beach Lido di Dante (Ravenna, Italy). For the period 2004-2009, variations in the shoreline at the zero sea levels have been quantified and analysed in conjunction with nearshore wave conditions and provenance linked to storm events : (1) storm events occurring during Bora (north-eastern) wind conditions and (2) storm events occurring during Scirocco (south-eastern) wind conditions. The correlation of shoreface variability as it relates to main recognized rotation events with the wave energy flux and the short-terms effects of nourishment interventions on the shoreface behavior are also investigated
