Abstract:

Geomorphic analysis was conducted for Sebastian Inlet, FL to re-formulate an analytic model of shoal evolution and sediment bypassing. The Tidal Inlet Reservoir Model Kraus 2002 was enhanced to include sediment pathways that allow seasonal reversals in littoral sand transport and episodic sand by-passing from an intra-inlet sand trap. The model was established with the aid of historical morphologic data from Sebastian Inlet, interpreted together with process data.
