Linear waves as well as finite-amplitude waves may be described by specifying two dimensionless parameters, the wave steepness H/L and the relative water depth d/L. The relative water depth determines whether waves are dispersive or nondispersive and whether the celerity, length and height are influenced by water depth. Wave steepness is a measure of how large a wave is relative to its height and whether the linear assumption is valid. Large values of the wave steepness suggest that the small-amplitude assumptions may be questionable.
During the action of larger waves the beach material is redistributed offshore to become a longshore bar or sandbar, generally visible at low tide. , 2000). Bars are formed near the breaking point (sometimes seaward of a trough) because the breaking waves set up a shoreward current with a compensating counter-current along the bottom. , 2000). Berms form as a result of preferential shoreward transport within the swash. ). The berm is periodically overtopped during storms or extreme high tides. On sandy and shingle beaches berms build seaward through the multiple accretion of bars to the beach face.
The Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) is the process used to decide what mix of outputs will be produced. Integrated coastal management can be defined as “a continuous and dynamic process by which decisions are taken for the sustainable use, development, and protection of coastal and marine areas and resources. ICM acknowledges the interrelationships that exist among coastal and ocean uses and the environments potentially affected, and is designed to overcome the fragmentation inherent in the sectorial management approach.
