Abstract:

To develop and enhance international collaboration in the area of coastal sediment transport processes. The primary objectives of our collaboration are to further the theoretical and experimental investigations of the smaller-scale physical processes which must be incorporated in the development of a local model for sand transport and morphological evolution in coastal regions, including bedform prediction, local boundary layer hydrodynamics and a description of sediment dynamics covering the region from the immobile seabed to the overlying dilute suspension, incorporating both bedload and suspended load modes of sand transport.
