Summary

Beach profiles have been monitored along the beach frontage and at the River Don Estary since 1983. Survey is carried out annually in the summer (however, data were not gathered in 1999 or 2000). It has, up to now, been carried out at the toe of the sea wall. However, the 2001 survey will be extended to survey the beach levels 12ft from the sea wall.
