Abstract

In this paper, simple energetics modelling is used to compare velocity moment predictions with field observations of suspended sand transport rates. Separate consideration is given to transport associated with the 3 main frequency-dependent cross-shore transport processes : that associated with the short (incident) waves, that due to the long infragravity waves, and transport associated with the mean flow. Comparison of the suspended load velocity moment predictions with field measurements is then used to assess the validity of this energetics approach in the prediction of cross-shore suspended sand transport fluxes
