ABSTRACT This study examines historical shoreline change in southwestern Maui, Hawaii,based on orthophotos,for seven years between,1949 and 1997 and NOAA T-sheet shorelines from,1900 and 1912. A reweighted,least squares (RLS) regression,is applied,to the most,recent trend in the data to calculate average($#$#$#CommaToBeDet, • In successively later time intervals the focus of erosion migrated,northward. Some of the eroded sediment may have been deposited in the northern part of the site, which

    • ...In addition, we multiply the movement of the historical vegetation line by the di¡erence in elevation between the coastal plain and the depth of the fringing reef (Rooney and Fletcher, 2000) to calculate long-term coastal plain accretion...
    • ...To this, we add the product of the change in vegetation line with the depth of the fringing reef (at each transect), to determine the historical volume change (vV2) of the area landward of the beach face (Rooney and Fletcher, 2000 )( Fig. 9). Net volume change for each 20-m transect is then obtained using: vV 2 ¼½ ðGp � vX 2 Þþð vVeg � vZÞ� � 20 ð2Þ...

    • ...Although the amount of sand released by erosion from coastal plain sediments to the beaches is relatively small compared to annual longshore sediment fluxes, it is the primary source of material for maintaining long-term sediment budgets on Hawaiian beaches (Harney et al., 1999, Rooney and Fletcher, 2000)...
