Cover Story (view full-size image): Artificial nourishments are a coastal erosion mitigation strategy that aims to decrease the negative sediment budgets in the coastal system. It is essential to understand and adequately model the shoreline response after a nourishment operation to achieve the best performance scenarios. A shoreline evolution numerical model was applied to evaluate the spatial and temporal distribution of the nourished sediments along the coast, considering different beaches and incident wave climates. It is highlighted that higher longshore sediment transport rates are associated with more energetic wave climates, but not necessarily with incident waves more oblique to the shoreline.
