Abstract

Abstract The critical relationships between beach and nearshore parameters and the erosion/accretion status of frontal dunes have been investigated using LIDAR data, complemented by data obtained from conventional topographic and bathymetric surveys, at five dune systems in England and Wales. Morphometric parameters calculated from the LIDAR data demonstrate the presence of a general relationship between beach morphology, dune morphology and erosion/accretion. Eroding dunes were found to be associated wi [KEYWORDS: LIDAR ; Coastal dunes ; Beach–dune interaction ; Erosion ; Morphology]
