Abstract: For Rollover Pass, which is a man-made, artificially stabilized tidal inlet located on the upper Gulf Coast of Texas, the magnitude of the net sand transport through the Pass was estimated from dredge material volumes for the Intracoastal Waterway north of the Pass, and from three sediment load measurements in the Pass. The excess beach erosion downdrift of the Pass is an order of magnitude smaller than the estimates of net transport through the Pass.
