Abstract : The purpose of this article is to provide information for planning a physical monitoring program for contour-parallel nearshore sand berms. Nearshore berms constructed of clean, sandy, dredged material are becoming more popular as Districts and other agencies realize their potential benefits. Monitoring is necessary to ensure that the berms are constructed properly and to assess their behavior. The information presented here supplements information in Technical Note EEDP-01-12 (Clausner 1988) on using sea be drifters (SBDs) to site and monitor feeder and stable berms. -BKA
