LONGSHORE WATER AND SEDIMENT MOVEMENT

D.H. Swart, C.A. Fleming

Abstract


The mean sediment transport rate obtained by using six known longshore transport formulae3 for which the input variables are determined consistently3 is used as best estimate of the transport. A good comparison is obtained when this package deal approach is compared with a prototype situation where the transport rates are inferred from quarterly bathymetric surveys over two years. The accuracy of the input variables is reviewed theoretically and the results are used to perform a sensitivity analysis.
