Description: Technical note
Purpose: To present revised procedures for predicting whether a beach profile of a specified sand size will tend to erode or accrete through cross-shore transport produced by incident waves of given height and period. This CETN supplements pages 4-83 through 4-85 of the Shore Protection Manual (SPM 1984) and is a revision of a previous CETN of the same title dated June 1988, updated to include 100 new field data points. This information can be used to evaluate the stability of an existing beach or a beach fill, as well as assess the cross-shore direction of movement of artificial sand bars placed in the nearshore (cf. Dredging Research Program Technical Note DRP-5-02).
