Sediment transport, ripple dynamics and object burial under shoaling waves
A comprehensive study is being conducted with emphasis on establishing laboratory-based physical model for predicting ripple dynamics and scour, burial behavior of bottom objects in oceanic coastal environments. A brief description of this study as well as salient observations and quantitative parameterizations on ripples, scour and burial that resulted from it are presented. Comparisons with field data are also given. The results have important coastal engineering and naval applications related to sediment transport and coastal morphodynamics under shoaling waves that are typical of coastal zone.
