    "Two time-series studies of wind, wave, and sediment process-response mechanisms that operate in the beach and inner nearshore areas of western Lake Michigan were conducted as part of a long term field program ... as well as part of the Illinois Coastal Zone Management Project. The ultimate objective of this program is the quantitative prediction of coastal changes utilizing computer modeling techniques ... The studies included systematic observation of environmental parameters and daily surveys of the beach and adjacent inner near-shore zone. Among the environmental parameters measured were barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, wave period, breaker height and angle of approach, and longshore current velocity."--Page [1].
