The long-term goal of this project is to develop quantitative models of sediment transport, resuspension, deposition and accumulation on the continental margin. The objectives of this research program are 1 to examine the sediment transport mechanisms on the Po delta, particularly the role of fluid mud flows on sediment dispersal 2 to quantify the dynamics of the western Adriatic coastal current and its role in along-shelf and cross-shelf sediment transport 3 to make rigorous comparisons between observations and models of the transport processes on the Po delta and the coastal current in order to improve the predictions of sediment transport and morphodynamic evolution.
