Statement: Beach profile under summer conditions
Abstract: Animation of coastal beach formation during summer season. This cycle would be typical for for example beaches in California.
An equilibrium beach profile results from steady modest wave forcing during the summer. Summer wave conditions move sand onto the beach, widening its profile. Winter storm waves move sand offshore (see assocated animation.Summer and winter beach profiles are expressions of the seasonal cycle of wave energy.
