With reference to Dr Samantha Cope's PhD Thesis, please note the cover note below:-

Predictions for Medmerry, West Sussex have been based on the availability of limited data at the time. Therefore, application of these findings for practical purposes should be made with caution; please contact Dr Cope to discuss further.

(Reference sub-model 1) Further research is being undertaken by the Channel Coastal Observatory and Southampton University on behalf of SCOPAC. The study will apply Bradbury's (1998) overwashing model to all barrier beaches and spits between Portland Bill, Dorset and Shoreham, Sussex. Met Office wave data from 1986-2004, will be transformed to a nearshore point from which return periods will be derived. These will be more accurate than those used in this thesis.

(Reference sub-model 2) Discussions with Chichester District Council suggest that the annual longshore drift rate of 7,000 m3 used for application of Bruun and Gerristen (1960) approach for Medmerry is high. See the 2004 SCOPAC Sediment Transport Study for more information.
