Abstract:

My long term goal is to develop a predictive understanding of the fluid dynamics of a random wave field shoaling over the complicated bathymetry of a natural beach, and the response of the beach to those overlying wave and current motions. Success requires improvements in understanding and modeling as well the development of innovative methods for collecting measurements needed to seed those models.
