The Structure of Intermittent Sand Suspension Events Under Mild Wave Conditions

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.
