pybeach: A Python package for extracting the location of dune toes on beach profile transects

Sandy coastlines typically comprise two key parts; a beach and dune. The beach is the section of sandy coast that is mostly above water (depending upon tide) and actively influenced by waves, while dunes are elevated mounds/ridges of sand at the back …

Ensemble models from machine learning: an example of wave runup and coastal dune erosion

After decades of study and significant data collection of time-varying swash on sandy beaches, there is no single deterministic prediction scheme for wave runup that eliminates prediction error – even bespoke, locally tuned predictors present scatter …
