Abstract

Erosion and accretion of beaches are naturally occur when it experience monsoon. However, most of the beaches are experiencing erosion after experiencing northeast (NE) monsoon due to the climate change. This NE monsoon affects the beaches at the east of Peninsular Malaysia and the west of Borneo. In this study, Cakar Hutan and Ma’ Daerah Turtle Sanctuary were facing an erosion but only in Seberang Penarik beach experiencing accretion. Futhermore, less study research in these beach area have been conducted. Therefore, this study aims to determine the geomorphological change in beaches after monsoon and determine the vulnerability of each beaches. The beach profiling method and shoreline tracing method were used to determine the geomorphological changes of the beaches. Coastal Integrity Vulnerability Assessment Tool (CIVAT) also used in order to determine the vulnerability of the beaches. The beach that have high level of vulnerability are Cakar Hutan and Ma’ Daerah Turtle Sanctuary meanwhile Seberang Penarik has medium vulnerability towards climate change.
