The beach profile measurement is defined as a cross sectional plot of the beach along a straight line running from a determined point on the beach towards the water’s edge.

When studied and compared over a long period of time, they highlight short-term and long-term changes in beach morphology.

This programme allows us to investigate seasonal changes in the beach profile, compare beach profiles in different locations along the beach and examine the effects of beach management practices and human activity on beach morphology.
