ON-OFFSHORE SEDIMENT TRANSPORT RATE IN THE SURF ZONE

Toru Sawaragi, Ichiro Deguchi

Abstract


In this paper, models of the distribution of net on-offshore sediment transport based on two-dimensional equilibrium beach profiles and an equation of continuity of sediment transport are proposed. Various parameters of net on-offshore sediment transport in those models are discussed. Furhter, the relative importance of bed load and suspended load in the two-dimensional beach deformation are examined by measuring both of them on model beach experiments.
