Suspended sediment transport near sloping topography

Universität Rostock, 2017

Abstract: Marine sediment transport is governed by the complex interplay of many different processes. Near sloping topography, sediment transport can be triggered by asymmetries in the density stratification during an oscillatory current going up and down the slope. This newly discovered process was investigated in detail by means of an idealized numerical model. A more profound numerical model was used to successfully reproduce observations of this process from the East China Sea, and to investigate the effect of Earth rotation.
