Abstract : This report, provides user instructions for processing analysis module VOLCTR, 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. VOLCTR displays beach profile changes, through time, at a locality by providing plots and tables of unit volume changes between specific contours. Unit volumes within selected contour segments are computed and compared from one survey to the next. Also computed and tabulated are several statistics on unit volume changes between the same surveys at all profile lines.
