The long-term goal of our research program is to improve scientific knowledge relevant to the understanding and modeling of mine burial in coastal environments. Mine burial is determined by a number of physical processes, for example, bedform migration, scour, sedimentation and impact of mines after free fall. These processes, in turn, are determined by a myriad of governing variables describing the characteristics of background flow, physical properties of the sea floor and mines, and modus of mine seeding. The main focus will be non-walking ship mines of cylindrical shape placed in the shoaling zone.
