Abstract

This study was conducted to examine differences in grain size characteristics of beach foreshore sediments at tidal inlets in greater detail and to provide additional explanations for their differences. It is suggested that tidal currents play a role in sediment coarsening at inlets, but coarser grain sizes are also related to offshore diversion of fine sediments moved to the inlet flank by longshore currents and to the removal of fine sediments from inlet flank beaches by winds and by low energy waves occurring at low stages of the tide
