Abstract: The textural characteristics of beach sediments mainly depend on the shore processes. The present study focuses on the sediment characterization and environment of deposition of beach sediments from Kollam to Marattadi, along the west coast of Kerala, India. Sediment samples were collected at finer intervals from the littoral zone and the textural characteristics were analyzed in the laboratory. Most of the samples from Kollam to Thirumullavaram deposit by beach process and those from Thirumullavaram to Marattadi deposit by riverine processes.
