Abstract

A field investigation was conducted 9 March 1994 on a dissipative beach to compare wind characteristics and aeolian transport during and after a light rain, at Wildwood, New Jersey. The amount of sand trapped at Wilwood during rainfall is relatively high when compared to many previous studies on beaches in the absence of rain. The great length of the beach as a source area, combined with parallel or oblique winds are significant in increasing rates of sediment transport
