Abstract : This report, provides user instructions for processing analysis module SURVY1, a part of the Beach Profile Analysis System (BPAS). The BPAS is a package of computer programs which edit and analyze beach profile data. The objective of the analysis is to compute and display changes in unit volume, shoreline position, and a profile geometry. SURVY1 displays beach profile changes, through time, at a locality by providing plots of the actual profile cross sections. Also available is a tabular listing of distance to, and slope of, the profile at the shoreline position.
