Abstract

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 inlets.
