The mechanism of sediment transport occurring in littoral zone shows complex patterns. Establishing an accurate longshore sediment budget prediction is difficult. Littoral drift flowing into and out of the coast shows sensitive responses to natural and anthropogenic changes in the surrounding area. In particular, at the coast where rivers are located, the littoral drift is significantly affected by the inflow of sediment from the upstream. However, the sediment management at the coast has been conducted by respective measures established in different areas, such as mountains in the upstream region, dams, rivers, and coasts, and thus, measures are established without an appropriate feedback between these different areas. Therefore, determining the exact causes of erosion occurring in the coastal zone is challenging. In addition, for accurate prediction of sediment budget in coastal areas, it is necessary to construct a model with mixed particle size distribution that can consider the properties of sediment inflow from the river and the sediment constituting the sea area. Thus, for integrated coastal erosion management, based on the determination of sediment transport mechanism flowing into the coastal zone, accurate estimation of sediment transport rate and sediment budget prediction according to the shoreline changes affected by waves play an important role.

In this study, a series of mechanism of sediment transport flowing into the sea area through the river was analyzed, and the sediment budget according to the shoreline change occurring in the sea area was estimated. The sediment load flowing into the sea area and the representative wave acting on the sea area were calculated to construct the IN-MPS (INje-Mixture Particle Shoreline) model considering the sediment particle size distribution in mixed condition. The accuracy of the model was evaluated by comparing the results obtained from the model with those of long-term observations by calculating the exact sediment budget in the coastal zone, and when the inflow from the river and the mixed particle size distribution of sediment were considered, the accuracy in the shoreline change prediction was improved.
