—The climate changes cause sea level variation
which varies spatial and temporal significantly, and it is now
possible to reconstruct how sea level varied globally and
regionally with time. The sea level rose faster than the global
mean since 1950 is now a fact, and although it is not the only
reason for shoreline erosion but it has a significant effects on the
processes of shoreline erosion. The wave’s actions are a
dominant cause of shoreline erosion, even if affected by higher
sea level rise rates. The research project reported in this paper
investigates the shoreline erosion in the north coast of Egypt.
Also the negative effects have been studied using new method.
The developed methodology depends on using a stationary
control measuring points instead of measuring the water depths
near the shore line as previous researchers get used to apply in
