Shoreline Recession v1 - Bruun Calculation
The tool applies the simple Bruun Model to calculate shoreline recession due to a rise in sea-level.
- Two-dimensional profile normal to the shoreline: all net sediment transfers are onshore-offshore, i.e. no alongshore flux.
- Profile in equilibrium with wave climatology, and physically composed of sand.
- The material landward of the shoreline consists of easy erodible sand.
