Chapters 13 and 14 describe two relatively straightforward techniques for measuring longshore transport, one involving short-term tracer experiments and the second longer-term trap experiments. Unfortunately, cross-shore transport is not readily amenable to either of these techniques. Cross-shore transport is driven by oscillatory velocities, near the bottom, which are nearly perpendicular to the shoreline. Net cross-shore transport results from a local or general assymmetry in these oscillations. In many cases, this bias is very small compared to the magnitude of the oscillatory component.
