Erosion Impact Analysis

Abstract
Water levels are one of many factors influencing erosion processes along the upper Great Lakes shoreline. The erosion activities undertaken by the Coastal Zone TWG were intended to focus on the most sensitive shoreline types in the context of the IUGLS water level management decisions. The activities included the undertaking of descriptive process reports on erosion processes for bedrock, stable dynamic and erosional sandy beaches, and cohesive shorelines. Based on the information regarding the expected sensitivity of particular shoreline types to water level fluctuations, specific modelling was undertaken to allow the comparison of water level regulation scenarios for the stable dynamic beach and cohesive shorelines. In the end, an operational model (CoRModel) was developed for comparing regulation plans at three specific cohesive shoreline test sites. The model was used as a performance indicator in the plan evaluation process.
