Abstract:

The ultimate goal of the present work is to develop numerical models of sediment transport in the nearshore which will permit the prediction of the evolution of nearshore bathymetry given the appropriate forcing parameters. The present work fits into this goal by seeking to understand what are the relevant forcing parameters and to determine how sediment is mobilized and transported in response to those parameters. The work is particularly focused on areas where the sediment response appears to be different from that observed in steady flow conditions.
