Abstract

On the Shonan coast facing Sagami Bay, part of the nourishment sand was considered to be transported offshore, devaluing the effect of beach nourishment. Beach changes after the beach nourishment were investigated using the Narrow Multi-Beam survey data, which have been collected since 2002. Analysis of the sand volume and grain size composition in the subareas showed that the effect of the beach nourishment on the deposition of fine sediment in the offshore zone was negligible, and that the fine material in the offshore zone was mainly brought from the erosion of the river mouth terrace.
