Figure 156. Long Sands Beach, York. At LS1 (a) standard deviation data show more summer variability in sand elevation against the seawall than in the winter. Most of the profile has 0.2 to 0.3 m of variation in both summer and winter. At LS2 (b) standard deviations are similar in summer and winter with slightly higher variability in summer. At LS3 (c) winter variability is significantly higher than in summer. At LS4 (d) the upper profile has more variability near shore while the rest of the profile is similar between the seasons.
