Abstract: Probable volume of littoral sediment transport at 2 ma depth contour along the shoreline between Munambam and Anthakaranazhi, Kerala, India has been computed for waves approaching the shore from directions varying from 220 degrees-300 degrees TN with periods varying from 6 to 14 sec. It is estimated that about 9 x 106 m3 of material drifts towards south annually between Munambam and Vypin while about 7 x 106 m3 of material drifts towards south between Fort Cochin and Anthakaranazhi. The drifts are discussed in relation to the availability of sediments and the instability of beaches.
