Abstract

The aeolian sand transport model SAFE and the air flow model HILL were applied to evaluate cross-shore changes at 2 nourished beaches and adjacent dunes, along the Dutch North Sea coast, and to identify the response of aeolian sand transport and morphology to several nourishment design parameters and fill characteristics. The main input of the model consisted of data on the sediment, tide and meteorological conditions, and of half-yearly measured characteristics of topography, vegetation and sand fences. The impact of parameters that are related to beach nourishment (namely grain size, adaptation length and beach topography) on profile development was evaluated
