Abstract

Sand movement in the surf zone was studied in a wave flume. The two categories of movement were suspension due to the vortex created by wave plunging, and deposition under turbulent flow. The suspension process could be explained in terms of the deep water wave steepness and the bottom slope. A numerical model of the process was formulated.
