1988 Coastal Engineering Proceedings  
In the beaches under study on the island of Grand Canary, we are identifying and measuring the intertidal annual cyclic processes of accretion and erosion, starting from the topographical movements of the strand. These processes: a) We are analyzing and interpreting these in the framework of the physical and geographical interdependences, and as responses to the more internal evolutions of the morphodynamics, in the sedimentary environments in question, b) and permitting the definition and
