Abstract:

This Coastal Engineering Technical Note CETN presents the background and methodology for separating shoreline position and volume change data into symmetric even and anti-symmetric odd functions. Applicability and interpretation of the even-odd function analysis for engineering application are also discussed. As applied to inlet data sets, the rates of shoreline and volume change which occur symmetrically about an inlet e.g., storm erosion, erosion and accretion due to relative sealevel change can be distinguished from those changes which are anti-symmetric e.g., updrift impoundment, downdrift erosion.
