Laboratory Study on Longshore Sediment Transport Processes at the Large-Scale Sediment Transport Facility

(Funded by U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center):


This study focuses on improving our capabilities of predicting longshore sediment transport rate. In a broader scope, this study aims at improving our understanding on coastal sediment transport processes. The recently established Large-Scale Sediment Transport Facility (LSTF), the largest and best equipped in the world, offers a unique opportunity for conducting cutting-edge research on fine-scale coastal sediment transport processes. The CRL is working toward developing this program into a long-term collaboration between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the University of South Florida on graduate research and education.
