Abstract : This report, the second in a series, document 13 system support computer programs developed to automate many of the tasks associated with conducting a design level numerical shoreline evolution investigation using the GENESIS model. Report 1, Technical Reference, is dedicated to a technical description of the GENESIS model and a pedagogic case study. Report 2, Workbook and System User's Manual, provides recommended procedures, techniques, and guidelines for preparing the required input data sets and for the overall conduct of a shoreline evolution investigation including model calibration, verification, and sensitivity testing. The system support computer programs documented herein are first technically described, and then multiple example applications of each program are given. Source code listings of many of the system support programs (more than 4,500 lines of FORTRAN CODE) are provided as appendices to the main text. The techniques and procedures recommended in the main text stem from approximately 5 years of GENESIS prototype applications both within the United States and abroad.
