Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand the physics of sediment transport by waves and currents and to use that understanding to predict the evolution of nearshore bathymetry given the nearshore fluid velocity field. A secondary goal is to interpret the environment of deposition and the offshore wave climate from the sedimentary record.
