Beach Morphology Monitoring Program
Summary Plot 5
Nearshore beach profiles for each of the 4 sub-cells within the CRLC
collected in 1999. These profiles reveal
the variability in morphology observed among the four sub-cells. The slope
for these profiles is measured from the 2.0-m elevation contour (NAVD 88)
offshore to the -10.0-m contour. The North Beach profile (km 137) is
relatively low sloping (0.0055, 1:181) and features 3 sandbars. The
profile collected in the Grayland Plains (km 102) shows small sandbar
features and a much steeper slope (0.0078, 1:128). The Long Beach profile
(km 69) has four sandbars with a larger outer sandbar (approximately 3.0-m
high) than each of the other three profiles. The slope of the Long Beach
profile is 0.0065 (1:153). The Clatsop Plains profile (km 22) has a
distinct outer bar approximately 2.0-m in height and a slope similar to
that of the Grayland profile, 0.0080 (1:125).
