Turbulence and sediment transport initiative – University of Copenhagen

The beach at Vejers. Note the large, dry intertidal bar which is indicative of onshore sand transport and beach accretion.

Turbulence and sediment transport initiative (TASTI)

The general aim of the project is to resolve the question how and why sand is transported onshore to feed beaches. This requires a description of the magnitude and intra-wave phasing of sand suspension due to both breaker-induced and bed-generated turbulence.

The project is funded by the Danish Natural Sciences Research Council for the period 2015-2019.
