Abstract:

A multidisciplinary investigation was conducted during June and July 1975 to acquire data that would set a basic framework of the physical processes controlling morphology of the northeast coast of Brazil. Detailed field data were taken at two sites along the coast Aracaju, Sergipe, and Suape, Pernambuco. Analysis of the data and long-term broad-scale data supplied by cooperating Brazilian agencies was conducted for two purposes to delineate the physical processes and morphology of the coast and to investigate under field conditions the mechanics of specific important coastal processes.
