Analysis of the coastal geomorphology of Cape Bird - onshore measurements (tides, wave height, current velocities and direction, climatic parameter) and offshore bathymetric surveys
Entry ID: K014_1971_1972_NZ_3

Abstract: Measurements were made on the following inputs into the beach system of Cape Bird: the tides, wave height, current velocities and directions, wind conditions and air temperature to examine which daily energy conditions were conducive to particular changes in the total sequence of observed changes in morphology and sediments. 14 profiles along the beach were re-surveyed 6 times during the season to ...
