Wave energy and clast transport in eastern Tasman Bay, New Zealand

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this paper is to determine whether wave energy in Tasman Bay is sufficient to initiate clast transport along the gravel platforms. In this study, wind data form Nelson airport and measured wave data from Cable Bay and Mackay Bluff are used in conjunction with 2 different mathematical models of clast transport. Values calculated from each of these models are compared with the present wind and wave environment of Tasman Bay. While the mathematical models can only provide approximations because of differences in bathymetry and wave morphology, they will provide a calibrated scale of clast movement along eastern Tasman Bay
