Reply to: Dubois, R. N., 2000. Discussion of: E. Robert Thieler, Orrin H. Pilkey, Jr., Robert S. Young, David M. Bush, and Fei Chai, 2000. The Use of Mathematical Models to Predict Beach Behavior for U.S. Coastal Engineering: A Critical Review

Abstract


We thank Dubois for his sincere discussion (DUBOIS, 2000) of our recent paper (THIELER et al., 2000) on the use of mathematical models used to predict beach behavior. In this reply, we address the following major points of Dubois' discussion: (1) his assertion that we have misread his results on shoreline response to sea-level rise; and (2) the specific questions he asks us about our philosophy concerning the use of models in coastal science and engineering.
