Observations from a field experiment along the south-Holland coast, the Netherlands, were carried out in order to obtain new insights about the impacts of the Rhine ROFI (Region of Freshwater Influence) on the sand transport patterns. The net alongshore sand transport is generally governed by tides. The sediment concentration in the middle shoreface increased significantly with approaching waves of higher than ~1 m and Tm0 > 5 s. The southward net transport of the alongshore component does not agree with the literature. Modulations of the net cross-shore transport direction were observed. The net transport is more relevant during the neap tides where the velocity magnitudes are smaller.
