This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN presents and documents a series of MATLAB and Python scripts that prepare, run, and process CSHORE files for use in Beach-fx. CSHORE Johnson et al. 2012 is a one-dimensional cross-shore profile evolution model that predicts storm-induced beach profile change. Beach-fx Gravens et al. 2007 is an engineering-economic model that computes the evolution and economic benefits associated with beach renourishment projects and requires profile erosion estimates. Historically, the cross-shore profile response model SBEACH Larson et al. 1990 has been implemented in the creation of Beach-fx studies although the Beach-fx model was designed to allow alternative profile response models, such as CSHORE, to be used.
