SBEACH - Storm-induced BEAch CHange Model
This module is interfaced via the Coastal Engineering Design and Analysis System (CEDAS) interface.

SBEACH (Storm-induced BEAch CHange Model) - simulates cross-shore beach, berm, and dune erosion produced by storm waves and water levels. The latest version allows simulation of dune erosion in the presence of a hard bottom.
