A beach-profile transition model is derived from analysis of 291 semidiurnal beach profiles measured on the Outer Banks, North Carolina, which allows prediction of successive beach profiles in terms of beach width, sediment storage, and surface configuration. The prediction requires knowledge of the initial profile and the stage in the development of a wave field. The model explains beach cycles which are purely associated with wave activity.
