Information about sediment suspension regularities, their distribution in the water column and ways of sediment transport is indispensible for the solution of ecological and sea culture development problems. In this paper an attempt is made to determine general regularities of clastic material migration in coastal zones and to complete them with design recommendations on the basis of special research carried out both by Soviet and Bulgarian and Polish Scientists.
