dc.descriptionIntroduction: Estimates of the longshore sand transport rate Q, the rate at which littoral material moves alongshore in the surf zone from currents produced by obliquely breaking waves, are often required in planning, design, and evaluation of various types of coastal projects. The widely-utilized CERC formula (SPM 1984) for estimating the potential longshore sand transport rate is based on the assumption that Q is proportional to the longshore component of energy flux in the surf zone.-
