Abstract:

The goal of this project is to quantify the processes that transport sediment in the coastal ocean and subsequently modify the seabed using a combination of numerical and observational techniques. Representations of transport events that can be compared to field observations provide insights that can then be extrapolated to larger temporal and spatial scales.
