Abstract : evolution. This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is the second of two CHETNs focused on improving technologies to forecast coastal foredune evolution. Part 1 summarized the short-, meso-, and multi-decadal-timescale environmental factors and forcing processes that influence the morphodynamic evolution of coastal foredunes and described a number of observational studies. Part 2 summarizes the existing approaches used to model foredune evolution and provides a new probabilistic modeling framework that integrates hydrodynamic and aeolian processes to forecast foredune
