Abstract : This report, provides user instructions for processing analysis module ELVDIS, a part of the Beach Profile Analysis System (BPAS). The BPAS is a package of computer programs which edit and analyze beach profile data. The objective of the analysis is to compute and display changes in unit volume, shoreline position, and a profile geometry. ELVDIS displays beach profile changes, through time, by providing plots and tables of elevation changes at points on profile lines. Included are the elevations at specific points during each survey and profile envelopes, showing the maximum and minimum points for all surveys.
