A morphodynamical model for coastal areas has been developed by simultaneously simulating the dynamics of waves, coastal currents, and sediment transport rates. The sediment transport rates are calculated on a staggered two-dimensional grid, and then the sediment budget is used to predict the coastal morphology changes. The model can simulate short-term and long-term morphological changes around coastal structures. A case study along the Nile Delta coast in Egypt is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the present model by calibrating and verifying the model results with field measurements. The model can be applied to coastal domains with similar characteristics with appropriate parameter calibration.
