Description: Miscellaneous Paper
From the Introduction: The estimation of the annual amount of sand transported along the coast is important for planning and constructing coastal structures. One of the motive forces for transporting sand along the coast is the well-known littoral current generated by wave action, and the other is the wind. Sand movement by wind action has been treated by several research workers. In this report, a summary of some of the available methods of calculating rate of sand transport by wind, and calculations for annual sand transport inland by wind from natural beaches are presented.
