Abstract:

The long-term goals of this study are to evaluate the role of high-concentration sediment suspensions fluid mud in sediment transport processes along muddy coastlines. This requires an understanding of the formation and dynamic behavior of fluid muds, as well as the effects on attenuation of surface waves as they approach the shoreline.
