Abstract:

The long-term goals are to predict the wave-induced three-dimensional velocity field and induced sediment transport over arbitrary bathymetry in the nearshore given the offshore wave conditions. Objectives Predict the vertical distributions of velocity and stress, and associated sediment transport and morphologic changes due to waves and currents in the nearshore, including breaking waves.
