COMBINED FLOW SAND TRANSPORT: FIELD MEASUREMENTS

Richard J.S. Whitehouse

Abstract


This paper compares the results of measurements obtained from two field experiments performed to determine the effect of waves and currents (w+c) on the transport of sand in suspension. One set of measurements are from an estuary (Maplin Sands) and the other are from the surf zone (Boscombe Pier). The vertical and temporal variation in and the correlation between some of the hydrodynamic and sediment dynamic parameters are discussed.
