Abstract:

LONG TERM GOALS. The long-term goals are to understand the transformation of surface gravity waves propagating across the nearshore to the beach, the corresponding wave-driven circulation, and the associated evolution of surfzone morphology. OBJECTIVES. The objectives in FY 97 are to obtain comprehensive field observations on a bathymetrically complex natural beach to develop, test, and improve models describing the transformation of surface waves across the nearshore and surfzone breaking wave-driven setup and near-bottom circulation evolution of the nearshore bathymetry in response to waves and circulation and additional objective is to provide data supporting other Sandy Duck studies of wave transformation, sediment transport, and acoustic properties.
