This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN is the first of two CHETNs focused on improving technologies to forecast coastal foredune evolution. Part 1 summarizes the short-, meso-, and multi-decadal-timescale environmental factors and forcing processes that influence the morphodynamic evolution of coastal foredunes. Part 2 reviews modeling approaches to forecast these changes and develops a probabilistic modeling framework to calculate foredune evolution that includes both erosion and growth processes.
