Short summary
Impacts of storm event chronology in a storm cluster was investigated. The largest event-driven bed level change occurred under the most powerful storm event when it initialised the cluster, and the lowest bed level change occurred for the weakest event when it ended the cluster. Negligible variability in the cumulative impact of the storm clusters occurred in response to different storm wave chronologies. However, the highest erosion was found when the storms approached in increasing severity.
