A One-Man Profiling Method for Beach Studies

W. J. Stephen (2)


An instrument system is described whereby beach profiles may be surveyed by one man without the aid of a field assistant. The accuracy of the method is tested and shown to give results within about ± .07 feet vertically with traverse legs less than 30 feet in horizontal distance. The procedure has additional appeal because the equipment is inexpensive and portable and the profile can usually be completed more quickly than by using a level and rod.
