Abstract
LONG-TERM GOALS: The primary goal of the research project is to contribute to a better understanding of the basic mechanisms controlling sediment transport in the nearshore regions. In particular, the structure of flow in the bottom boundary layer is studied along with its interaction with sediment dynamics and bottom morphology. Attention is also devoted to the steady streamings generated both within the bottom boundary layer and throughout the water column up to the free surface.
