Abstract:

This report is a compilation of data collected during two field data collection projects designed to measure the longshore sand transport rate. The field projects were conducted at East Pass, Florida, in September 1987 and Ludington, Michigan, in September 1988. Portable sand traps were used to make point measurements of longshore sand transport rates, with corresponding measurements of waves and currents. At Ludington, comparisons were made between the streamer traps and Optical Backscatter Sensors OBS under similar surf zone conditions. A complete listing of the sand transport rate, wave height and period, longshore current, water level, sand grain size data is presented for each field data collection project.
