Abstract

Undertow has been the subject of considerable discussion among geologists and has received some attention in the press. Some hold that it is a continuous return flow of water along the bottom from a shoreline and others contend that it is a pulsatory return of water alternating with its piling up due to the shoreward movement of waves of translation.
