QUANTIFICATION OF LONGSHORE SAND TRANSPORT

John S. Yeend, Darryl J. Hatheway

Abstract


The intent of this paper is to express the quantities
of sand bypassed by a sand transfer facility and
transported in the littoral drift at the South Lake Worth
Inlet, Palm Beach County, Florida. Discussion on littoral
transport volumes will include estimates of the annual
average drift from 1948 to 1987, and discussions of sand
bypassing quantities will include improvements in the
estimation of pumping rates.

Keywords


longshore transport; sediment transport; transport quantification
