The long-term goals of this research are to understand the dynamics of rip currents generated by large scale variations in alongshore pressure gradients and wave forcing, and the impact of rip currents on nearshore bathymetry. These goals will be accomplished collaboratively using field observations obtained as part of the Nearshore Canyon Experiment NCEX held in the fall of 2003 and with numerical models.
