Abstract

Five models for predicting rates of aeolian sand transport were evaluated using empirical data obtained from field experiments conducted in April 1994, at a beach on Inch Spit, County Kerry, Ireland. Measurements were made of vertical wind profiles (to derive shear velocity estimates), beach slope, and rates of sand transport. This paper describes the experiments and the resulting comparison of the models. The influence of sediment moisture content appeared to be the critical factor in degrading model viability
