The movement of sand. in the swash-zone south of the head of Monterey Canyon was studle'1' during February and March, 1966. A stationary sampler was designed and used in conjunction' with dyed fluo_rescent sands to trace the rate and direction of natural sand movement. A sequential multiple linear regression program was used to statistically analyze the ·- effects of this canyon and several other environmental parameters on the movement of beach sand. In all observations made, the sand was found to move toward the canyon head. The canyon also appears to be a major factor affecting the rate of beach sand drift.
