Abstract:We present a new software tool called “MorphAn” that enables easy assessment of sandy coasts. MorphAn provides the possibility to import data of various formats. The software pays special attention to coastal data provided in the so-called Jarkus format. Data can be analyzed with a GIS based map view. Simultaneously an overview of the profile development in time or a more detailed picture of the actual measurements is given. Furthermore, MorphAn includes the possibility to assess coasts for dune safety according the safety assessment rules VTV2006. The software program gives a graphically presentation of the calculation results of dune erosion according to the Duros+ and D++ model as well as calculation results of the normative erosion points. MorphAn also provides the possibility to calculate and visualize the momentary coastline (MKL) and the expected near future coast line position (TKL). The software is freely available and expected to become open source in 2012.
