Aeolian sediment transport on a beach with a varying sediment supply

de Vries, Sierd; Arens, Sebastiaan; Schipper, Matthieu A. de; Ranasinghe, Roshanka

Description

Variability in aeolian sediment transport rates have traditionally been explain by variability in wind speed. Although it is recognised in literature that limitations in sediment supply can influence sediment transport significantly, most models that predict aeolian sediment transport attribute a dominant role to the magnitude of the wind speed. In this paper it is proposed that spatio-temporal variability of aeolian sediment transport on beaches can be dominated by variations in sediment...[Show more]
