Accumulation of sediment around tidal inlets has become a matter of
renewed interest mainly for three reasons. The first of these is the need to
estimate the shoal volumes, particularly in the ebb shoal, as a potential
source of sediment for beach nourishment. The second reason is the need to assess the role of the inlet in
influencing the rate of erosion of downdrift shoreline, as a result of
interruption or deflection of the littoral drift. Finally, an evaluation of inlet sediment accumulation is essential to
account for the long term sedimentary budget of shorelines interrupted by
