Such changes are due to Ihe boundary conditions, and determine tbe existance of different sectors on the beach. Each one of this sectors follow a celtain pattern on the long-term volume change, the foreshore slope variability. the magnitude of the subaerial sand bars, and the presence/absence of beach cusps. Additional infonnalion on wave conditions and direction of sediment transport is obtained to characterize each sector.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/773||ISBN:||0784400431||Source:||Coastal Dynamics '94: Proceedings of an International Conference on the Role of the Large Scale Experiments in Coastal Research Held in Barcelona, Spain, February 21-25,, p. 417-431|
