Spatio-temporal variability in accretion and erosion of coastal foredunes in The Netherlands: regional climate and local topography
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.

Investigation of the relation between foredune erosion/accretion in relation to storminess, aeolian transport potential and beach width.
Type of research
The research is a statistical analysis of a long time series of beach profiles. Six sections of the Dutch coast are considered:Noord-Holland, Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland, Schiermonnikoog.
Method of data collection
Original data were obtained from other producers: see "calculated from" links.
Relevant parameters were derived from these datasets using simple algorithms.
• From yearly beach profile: beach width, dune volume
• From hourly sea level data: maximum sea level between profile measurements
• From hourly wind data: yearly transport potential for each site, with 4 different upper limits on wind velocity.
Derived data are that were used in this study are provided in separate files:
• beach_and_dune_data.nc: yearly values of beach width and dune volume for all profiles
• max_sea_level_data.nc: yearly maximum sea level between profile measurements
• transport_potential_data.nc: yearly transport potential for each site
