Abstract: In order to study sediment travelling paths across shoreline in different seasons, sediment samples were collected normal to the shoreline along three profiles, separated by 220m from Surathkal beach near Karnataka Regional Engineering College (K.R.E.C.), Karnataka. The sediments were analysed for their grain size characteristics (statistical parameters) and sediment trend matrix was prepared. By using sediment trend matrix, sediment travelling paths were drawn. It has been found that during premonsoon, sediments were moving predominantly towards offshore region, resulting in erosion. Sediments were moving predominantly towards shore and build-up of beach takes place during the post monsoon season.
