Information to be derived:
Summary: Track lines were run over nearshore sand beds to determine the volume available for beach replenishment. Approximately one third of the survey was completed before bad weather conditions concluded the job. Another survey will be planned for June 1986, completing the project so that coring can begin shortly thereafter.
