Abstract

Shows how the WIS (wave information study) data may be used in a littoral transport model to predict annual sediment transport rates and longshore drift roses for three neighbouring sections along the Delaware coast. The location of zero longshore drift is the nodal point. This is best obtained via determination of the shoreline orientation for zero net transport. (C.J.U.)
