Discussion of: Fucella, J.E. and Dolan, R., 1996. Magnitude of Subaerial Beach Disturbance During Northeast Storms. Journal of Coastal Research, 12(2), 420-429.

Robert J. Nicholls


FUCELLA and DOLAN (1996) revisit an interesting data set on subaerial beach change measured during 1963 and 1964 at Nags Head, North Carolina. They also make frequent reference to a paper by NICHOLLS and ORLANDO (1993) which outlines a new approach to measuring the maximum depth of disturbance on a subaerial beach during storms. They contrast the two methods used and make a number of comments on the approach of Nicholls and Orlando. This discussion considers the relative merits of the two approaches.
