The aim of this thesis is to present an analysis of the variations of beach and shoal forms, erosion, accretion and the movement of material, as observed during the past three years at Spurn Head, Yorkshire, in relation to conditions of winds, waves, and tidal streams . This investigation of the processes in operation today, is of interest in itself, and should throw light on the likely course of future events at Spurn. Furthermore, since similar processes have probably been in operation during the whole period of the existance of a spit at the mouth of the Humber, it is hoped that it will provide a useful contribution to the study of its history and evolution.
