Located at southern of Brazil, Cassino beach is a multiple sandbar beach. A video technique to map intertidal bathymetry changes was applied using CMYK color model to find the waterline position, hydrodynamic data and runup 2% (R2) parameterizations. Linear regression between waterline video detected and elevation estimated with in situ measured maximum swash, showed a correlation coefficient of r2=0.82 and r2=0.91, respectively. Rmse values for those comparison was 10.14 m (horizontal detection) and 0.12 m (elevation). The empirical swash coefficient (Kosc) was 1.08 with a total error δz of rms=0.25 m and represents a waterline underestimated to compensate the overestimated horizontal determination. The principal error was found to be at horizontal position, which means that the R2 parameterization was efficient. The estimated bathymetry temporal evolution changes showed a similar morphologic evolution when compared with beach profile with a total rmse of 0.13 m.
