Abstract : The long-term goals of this project were to advance the understanding of fluid-sediment interactions in fluid boundary layer under waves; and in this way to improve models of fluid transport of sediment, nutrients and contaminants. Improved modeling will lead to better understanding of bedform response to fluid forcing and to improved prediction of beach morphology. (MM) (SEE PAGE 1, 2ND PARAGRAPH, FOR ABSTRACT.
