Abstract

Identification of the shapes of sand spits and beach sediment accumulations at headlands, as seen in a sequential time coverage of aerial photographs, have allowed interpretation of the net directions of sediment transport by littoral drift and determination of the average annual rates of the beach sediment transport. The dominantly south to southeastward direction results primarily from the oblique approach of south westward directed sea-waves and swell from the South China Sea during the NE monsoon.
