Movement of beach material in the littoral zone under the influence of waves and currents.
Movement of sand by littoral (longshore) currents in a direction parallel to the beach along the shore.
Movement of beach sand parallel to the shoreline. Caused by waves and longshore currents parallel to the beach.
The transport of sand in the surf zone, parallel to the shoreline, by longshore currents.
The sediment that is transported by waves and currents through beach drift and longshore drift along coastal areas.
Sand and coarser material moved in the breaker and swash zones by waves and longshore currents along the shoreline.
The movement of gravel, sand and other beach material along the coast, which is caused by waves and currents. ( transport littoral)
The sedimentary material moved parallel to the shoreline in the nearshore zone by waves and currents.
The sedimentary material moved in the littoral zone under the influence of waves and currents
The movement of material, usually sand, transported in the near shore zone by waves and currents. Includes movement parallel (longshore transport) and perpendicular (on-offshore transport) to the shore. The primary factor that determines long-term changes in the shape of the beach.
