Integration of Coastal Change Processes Schematic

Detailed Description

Schematic describing a methodology to integrate short-term (e.g. measured or modeled wave forcing; left panel) and long-term (e.g. decadal shoreline positions from Ocean Beach, CA; middle panel) processes to generate predictions of coastal change and uncertainty around future conditions (right panel). The methodology follows the data assimilation approach developed in Long and Plant 2012.
