Abstract:
The present study attempts a comprehensive environmental analysis of a 40km section of the East Anglian Coast between Winterton in Norfolk and Benacre in Suffolk. Changes along this section and the sediment volumes concerned are estimated by the use of maps and charts are used to study the offshore change. The results of wave data gathered over a twelve month period at the shoreline are discussed and compared with data gathered - outside the sand banks. Longshore wave energy values are related to wind data for the ten year period 1963-1972. Sediment movement is discussed in the light of tracer experiments conducted both on the beach and in the offshore zone. A wave refraction analysis by computer is related to accretion and erosion at the shoreline. Tidal current data are also analysed for the offshore region and related to the current data for the whole of the East Anglian Coast.
