The Southern California Beach Processes Study (SCBPS) is designed to improve our understanding of beach sand transport by waves and currents, thus improving local and regional management of sandy shorelines. Changes in beach sand level, and the waves causing those changes, are monitored over portions of the Southern California shoreline. The observations are provided to agencies concerned with beach management. http: //cdip. ucsd. edu Email: [email protected] ucsd. edu
