Seymour and King (1982) evaluated a number of existing models for cross-shore transport by testing their skill in predicting the observed beach excursions at Torrey Pines. The results were discouraging, in that none of the models showed a useful skill level. As discussed in Chapter 12, the Torrey Pines data set may not have provided a realistic test for these models. Therefore, the other three data sets described in Chapter 12 (Scripps Beach, Santa Barbara and Virginia Beach) were employed to evaluate models for cross-shore transport.
