project, as finally completed, constructed a beach 8 miles long with a 100-ft-wide berm. A total of 2.7 million yd3 was removed from two borrow sites and placed on the beach. This report discusses the methodology used in sampling and analyzing sediment from the native beach and each borrow site. Beach samples were collected at periodic intervals along 36 profile lines perpendicular to the beach. Samples extended from the upper berm to-30 ft National Geodetic Vertical Datum. Grain size was computed for each sample, and a grand composite sample was computed for the entire beach. Results suggest that this technique collected and analyzed more samples than were necessary. Sampling schemes should be closely tied to local profil
