Abstract : This report, provides user instructions for processing analysis module BEACH, 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. BEACH displays beach profile changes, through time, at a locality by providing tabular and graphical displays of shoreline and unit volume changes. The module also displays the results of linear regression analysis correlating shoreline and unit volume changes with time and with one another.
