In the comparison between scenarios, the wave farm at a distance of 2 km caused greater PHA-739358 of the erosion along the beach than the other scenarios, in which areas with significant reductions of erosion were combined with negligible values or even accretion. In the lower sections of the beach, accretion occurred due to the amount of material eroded in the beach face. For instance, in the scenario with the wave farm closest to the coast the BLI took negative values of −0.5 m in the southern area of the beach, which meant that the accretion without the farm was bigger than with it, due to the greater erosion produced in the intertidal area in the baseline scenario. This reduction of the accretion with the wave farm at a distance of 4 km and 6 km took place only in a few sections of the beach with BLI values less than 0.3 m.
