To investigate into the dynamics of suspended sediment transport brought about by swash and backwash on representative beaches in Hong Kong. The study involves synchronised sampling of sea water associated with swash and backwash in the intertidal zone in various tidal, wind and wave conditions, followed by laboratory analysis. Results would throw light on the changing balance in the input and output of suspended sediment load and provide an evaluation of the contribution of sediment suspension or re-suspension to cut and fill in the beach compartment.
