The long range goal of this research is to build the knowledge base necessary to paramaterize small scale processes of coastal sediment transport for inclusion in morphological models of larger scale coastal behavior. The immediate objectives of this project are to examine the importance of various time and space scales of sediment transport in the context of morphology change. In particular, this research will attempt to partition sediment transport into compartments of different temporal scales and to examine how this partitioning varies as a function of incident forcing, location within the surf zone and vertical position.
