This manual assembles into a single source the current practice in coastal engineering with respect to estimating nearshore wave characteristics, longshore currents, and longshore sand transport rates including a section describing littoral budget methodology. This manual draws upon a large number of sources to present techniques for evaluating these nearshore phenomena. The design engineer is expected to adopt general guidance presented in this manual to site-specific projects deviations from this guidance are acceptable if adequately substantiated.
