Argus video data collected at Perranporth (installed 1996) and Porthtowan (new installation) provide a key source of information in assessing the morphological changes along the coastline in the lee of Wave Hub. Comparison of intertidal beach dynamics, especially in the form of bar/rip morphology, before and after Wave Hub installation, as well as a comparison between the two Argus sites, will form an essential component of this workpackage.
Changes to coastal morphology
Wave Hub Impacts on Seabed & Shoreline Processes (WHISSP)
This will be supplemented with monthly 3D morphological surveys of the key beaches in the lee of Wave Hub.
