Long-term topographic changes since 1968 along the entire Shizuoka and Shimizu coasts including a 17 km stretch extending between the Abe River mouth and the tip of the Mihono-matsubara sand spit were investigated. Beach erosion of these coasts was triggered by the decrease in sediment supply from the Abe River due to excessive riverbed mining until 1967. After 1982/1983, natural sand supply from the river increased and accretion occurred on these coasts. Measured topographic changes were reproduced using the contour-line-change model considering changes in grain size. Not only the movement of the sand body but also the shoreline and bathymetric changes were numerically reproduced. The calculated results were in good agreement with the measured topographic changes.
