AbstractStarting from a basic model of sediment transport, an expression for on/offshore movement of sediment on a beach is developed. Equilibrium profiles are determined by requiring that the time­averaged transport is zero everywhere on the profile. The results obtained from this particular model are in much better, general agreement with field observations than is the classical, null-point theory. The formation of longshore bars, due either to the reflection of incoming waves or the existence of low frequency, standing waves, is found to be an explicit prediction of the model.
