Abstract:

The goals of this research are to develop greater understanding of the links between floc dynamics and the generation of sedimentary facies on the continental shelf. In particular, we seek greater understanding of the dynamics underlying the sand-mud transition through investigation of how flocculation affects the transport and deposition of fine-grained sediments.
