The Structure of Intermittent Sand Suspension Events Under Mild Wave Conditionsby Daniel M. Hanes, Univ of Miami, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling
Abstract: Nearshore sedimentation processes are being actively investigated through a series of research projects at the University of Miami. Quantitative measurements of waves, currents, and suspended sediment concentration are obtained with electro-magnetic, acoustical, and optical instrumentation. Primary findings relate to the intermittency of sediment suspension due to waves. It has been found that intermittent, wave induced, near-bed suspension represents a process of significance to the entrainment and transport of sediment in nearshore regions.
