Abstract

The AA. report on a field experiment studying the effects of different densities of roughness elements on sediment transport and foredune profile development. Reed stems are planted as a surrogate for vegetation at the frontal side of the foredune. Plots are covered with a regular pattern of bundles of reed stems, in 3 different densities. Profiles through the plots are monitored over a period of one year. The aim of the experiment is to study profile development for several vegetation densities and to provide validation data for the foredune development model SAFE. The AA. present a comparison between field and model results
