Experimental results are very important to understand the complex nature of sand transport. They give insight in the relevant processes and can be used to validate model concepts. Most of the laboratory experiments on wave-related transport processes are carried out in oscillating water tunnels and in wave flumes. There are large-scale and small...

Massive mining of sand from the middle and lower shoreface (depths of 10-30 m) in large-scale mining and borrow pits will be required in future in many European countries to nourish coastal beaches and dunes in response to increased coastal erosion due to expected sea level rise. The offshore mining of sand will require fundamental knowledge of...
