Abstract:

This Coastal Engineering Technical Note CETN discusses the steps required for developing a sediment budget in coastal reaches that include inlets. The types of data sets and analysis procedures useful in formulating sediment budgets are addressed, as well as a methodology for incorporation of both quantitative and qualitative data. A sediment-budget methodology for inlets and adjacent beaches is presented, and its application is illustrated through an example. This September 1999 revision supercedes the previous CETN and contains recent developments from the Coastal Inlets Research Program. The revision expands the methodology for formulating sediment budgets along coasts that include inlets, and additional notation and terminology are introduced.
