The goal of this research is to improve understanding of the dynamic pore water pressure gradients resulting from surface gravity wind generated waves in shallow-water, surficial sediments. This improved understanding of pore pressure gradients will, in turn, improve understanding of the resulting pore water flow and its impact on sediment transport, scour burial of objects resting on the seafloor, liquefaction of surficial sediments, and contaminant transport.
