This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Tech Note CHETN introduces the application of the cross-shore wave, hydrodynamic, and morphology evolution model CSHORE in the Coastal Model Test Bed CMTB. Numerical models such as CSHORE are frequently employed by engineers and scientists to investigate various environmental conditions that drive complex coastal morphology evolution at relatively low cost. The CMTB is an initiative to evaluate the strengths and shortcomings in the performance of these coastal numerical models by comparing the model results to high-resolution measurements at the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory CHL, Field Research Facility FRF, in Duck, NC Bak et al. 2017. CSHORE is a one-dimensional 1D numerical model including waves, currents, and bed evolution in the nearshore Johnson et al. 2012 Kobayashi 2013 this document lays out the models current setup and configuration as part of the CMTB.
