Abstract:

The report discusses the first beach profiling project of Lake Michigan. Profiling was initiated at three southeastern beaches in June 1968. Two years later a study was made of the entire eastern coast. This report is based on data collected from August 1970 through July 1971 and covered 17 beaches between Point Betsie and Lakeside, Michigan. Profiling during extreme changes in lake level provides data to enable prediction of changes in beach geometry during future lake level fluctuations, and are valuable in establishing land use plans and zoning ordinances for coastal areas.
