Beach Monitoring Reports
June 2013 Report

Date: 2 June 2013
 

Monitoring Team: Nick, Jenny, Ian & David
 

Analysis & Report: David Bills-Thompson, PFCG Technical Officer and Data Co-ordinator

 

Comments:  Post 8 continues to be the most active part of the beach with evidence that post 7 is also becoming more active. 

 

The reduced beach gradient at Post 8 could indicate a large sand movement seaward.
There is a general loss of beach sand southward to post 4. Note that posts 4 - 10 are beyond the rock wall.

 

Post 3, Manifold St. seems to be the most stable at present and there is insufficient data at posts 1 & 2 at the moment.

Future profile measurements need to include at least 3 measurements if the gradient looks to be straight and at least 4 measurements when there is a noticeable change in gradient.
