Abstract:

The long-term goals of this research are to understand the dynamics of rip currents generated by large-scale variations in alongshore pressure gradients and wave forcing, and the impact of rip currents on nearshore bathymetry. These goals will be accomplished collaboratively using field observations and numerical models, and will be pursued as part of the Nearshore Canyon Experiment NCEX held in fall of 2003.
