Abstract:

By improving numerical representations of coastal circulation, sediment properties, and wave fields, this project seeks to develop reliable predictions of sediment transport and deposition. Calculations made over seasonal timescales can be validated with available observations. The model can then be used to extrapolate to larger temporal and spatial scales.
