The report summarizes information needed by geomorphologists concerned with explaining coastal features or by engineers designing structures exposed to physical attack by the sea. Summaries of tidal ranges, state of the sea, swell characteristics, and comments on wave energy are based on tables prepared by the Coast and Geodetic Survey ESSA, the Navy Hydrographic Office, and Army Engineering Research and Development Laboratories. Suggestions are included designating parts of the coast where effects of sea and swell may be differentiated, but no morphological forms are discussed. The active physical processes involved in changing coasts tabulated here are to be used along with knowledge of passive factors, such as lithology and topography, for explaining coastal forms or for purposes of engineering design.
