The highly dynamic South African coastal zone is subject to a complex interaction of physical processes such as waves, winds, tides and sediment transport. Responsible coastal engineering design and environmental assessments require an adequate quantification of such processes. Mathematical modelling is increasingly being recognized as a powerful tool for quantifying coastal processes. This paper outlined a number of such models and discussed practical application to three case studies.
