Abstract: Agua Hedionda Lagoon is near Carlsbad, CA, and is near the middle of the Oceanside littoral sedimentation cell. Since its initial dredging in 1954, the lagoon has become a coastal sediment trap that must be dredged almost yearly. The purpose herein is to show the rate of sediment deposition in the lagoon from 1955 to 1961.
