The goals of the project are to develop better understanding and predictive capability for non-linear time-dependent dynamics in the swash zone. Although sophisticated models for simulating swash hydrodynamic processes are available a Navier-Stokes based swash model that implements the Volume of Fluid VOF method is being adapted under separate funding, detailed measurements within this dynamic region are needed to develop and validate models describing coupled fluid-sediment transport.
