This paper deals with the solution of a one-phase Stefan melting problem that models the movement of the shoreline in a sedimentary ocean basin which is considered as a moving boundary problem with variable latent heat. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into a set of ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations via the Lie group analysis. We then propose Chebyshev wavelet analysis method for solving the resulting system. A comparison between the
