Abstract:

This report provides detailed guidance on the use of Lateral Boundary Conditions LBCs within the shoreline change model GenCade. LBCs are a requirement for every model setup. The report focuses on two topics. First, it provides explicit guidance on how to set up the three types of LBCs Pinned, Moving, and Gated beyond that provided in previous reports. In particular, it provides detailed instructions on the set up and calibration of the Gated LBC. Second, the report discusses how induced errors can affect model results, both at the ends of the grid where the LBCs are applied and in the interior of the model. This report is one of a series whose intent is to provide detailed guidance to the GenCade model user.
