A landward transport process of spray generated from a wave absorbing sea wall under a strong wind has been investigated experimentally. Near the wall, the concentration of spray decays exponentially both in the leeward direction and in the upward direction. The profiles are determined by the equilibrium between the advection of spray and the sedimentation. The characteristic quantities on the profiles have been related to the experimental parameters.
