Abstract


In this paper the coupling of a quasi-3D model for the suspended sediment transport with a quasi-3d model for the wave driven flow is presented. The quasi-3d model for the transport is based on an asymptotic solution of the wave-averaged convection-diffusion equation while the quasi-3D wave driven current model is based on a profile function technique. The resulting model is a low cost but detailed alternative to a full 3D model. An application is presented concerning cross-shore transport. Preliminary conclusions are drawn.
