SAND TRANSPORT UNDER THE ACTION OF WIND

Ulrich Zanke

Abstract


Field investigations on sand-transport by wind were carried out at German North-Sea coast. A special trap was constructed, which allows to measure bed load and suspended load separated. In addition wind speed was measured up to 10 m over the bottom. The results of the field investigations were used to calibrate a transport-equation for sandtransport by wind.

Keywords
