Description

Effective design and maintenance of inlet navigation and shore protection projects require accurate estimates of the quantity of sand that moves along the beach. The accuracy of present methods for estimating longshore sand transport (LST) rates is uncertain, but believed to be no better than +/- 30 to 50 percent. As part of a thrust to improve capabilities for predicting LST rates, researchers have developed a mobile-bed Large-scale Sediment Transport Facility (LSTF).
