Cross-shore sediment transport due to the nonlinear interaction of waves in the nearshore region Seminar

11 June 2013
NOCS conference room, 344/32 These seminars are intended for both students and staff, and recent graduates.

Event details

Coastal Seminar Series: These seminars illustrate the breadth of coastal studies at the University of Southampton. Traditionally, this seminar series is held at Highfield, hosted by the faculty of Engineering and the Environment. This term only, the seminars will be held at NOCS, and will aim to showcase areas of research within the coastal research theme at Ocean and Earth Science.

The skewness of near-bottom velocity distribution caused by the nonlinear interaction of the Stokes' 2nd order waves can explain the on-offshore movement of bottom sediment. In this talk a new concept of neutral depth which can explain the recovery of beach equilibrium after a disturbance is suggested and discussed.
