Figure 33. Ferry Beach, Scarborough. (a) The profile variability at WS1FS increases with distance offshore. The winter profile tends to be more variable than the summer profile. (b) At WS1BS the pattern continues as in WS1FS above. (c) At WS2FS the higher standard deviation in summer can be attributed to berm formation. (d) Variability at WS2BS is low on the upper profile in both seasons and, as expected, higher on the outer profile where there is more influence of beach nourishment and tidal currents of the Scarborough River.
