Abstract:

The long-term goals of this program are to improve our understanding of sediment transport processes in the nearshore. The interactions between physical forcing mechanisms and sediments lead to spatial and temporal variations in sediment flux, beach erosion, and deposition which drives changes in nearshore morphology. Thus small-scale studies of sediment-fluid interactions provide the link to ultimately understanding large-scale beach response.
