The Statistics of Storm-Induced Sediment Resuspensionby Raymond A. Sosnowski, Sanders Associates Inc, Nashua, NH, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Coastal Zone '85
Abstract: The passage of a storm increases the wind stress applied to the sea surface. This surface stress is partially dissipated as it is transmitted through the water column. Some fraction of this stress, however, eventually reaches the bottom through turbulent transfer. The application of this bottom stress then causes the erosion of bottom material when some threshold value is exceeded.
