FIELD MEASUREMENTS AND ANALYSIS OF WAVE INDUCED NEARSHORE CURRENTS

H.D. Niemeyer

Abstract


Two data sets of field measurements of wave-induced nearshore currents are analyzed and discussed with respect to crossshore transport phenonema and the effectiveness of beach groynes. The results are discussed in order to improve future artificial beach nourishments.

Keywords
