Available from National T This report describes a study of coastal processes along the Atlantic coast from Asbury Park to Manasquan, New Jersey. Numerical predictive models for storm surge, dune erosion, nearshore wave transformation, and shoreline response were used in conjunction with an intensive analysis of available physical data to assist in the design, evaluation, and implementation of comprehensive shore protection plans for this densely populated and heavily structured coastal region. The study was divided into four independent but interrelated areas: (a) deepwater wave climate analysis and nearshore wave transformation, (b) long-term shoreline response numerical modeling, (c) development of coastal stage-frequency relationships, and (d) numerical modeling of storm-induced dune erosion. The results, interrelations, and recommendations of these tasks are presented in the main body of the report together with guidance for the interpretation of (Continued
