Measurements of nearshore currents can be performed using a range of existing measurement techniques. Although every technique has its specific benefits, capturing strong spatial gradients in a flow field with sufficiently high spatial resolution often proves to be difficult due to high costs or practical difficulties associated with these...

Cross-shore exchange between the surf zone and the inner shelf is investigated using Lagrangian and Eulerian field measurements of rip current flows on a rip-channeled beach in Sand City, California. Surface drifters released on the inner shelf during weak wind conditions moved seaward due to rip current pulses and then returned shoreward in an...

Larvae of many intertidal species develop offshore and must cross the surf zone to complete their onshore migration to adult habitats. Depending on hydrodynamics, the surf zone may limit this migration, especially on reflective rocky shores. As a logistically tractable analog of a rocky shore environment, we carried out a comprehensive...

Large beach nourishments are often considered an efficient way to deal with coastal zone management issues, notably coastal erosion. Such large nourishments can act as a geometric perturbation, which might cause the tidal current to detach from the coastline. The Sand Motor is a mega-scale beach nourishment in the Netherlands. Field observations...

This study investigates the potential of rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to monitor the surfzone. This paper shows that these UAVs are extremely flexible surveying platforms that can gather nearcontinuous moderate spatial resolution and high temporal resolution imagery from a fixed position high above a study site. The rotary wing...

Our understanding of temperature dissipation rate ? within the upper ocean boundary layer, which is critical for climate forecasts, is very limited. Near-surface turbulence also affects dispersion of contaminants and biogeochemical tracers. Using high-resolution optical turbulence measurements, scaling laws for ? are investigated under forcing...

Coastal waters are an aerodynamically unique environment that has been little explored from an air-sea interaction point of view. Consequently, most studies must assume that open ocean-derived parameterizations of the air-sea momentum flux are representative of the nearshore wind forcing. Observations made at the New River Inlet in North...

Although it is generally acknowledged that the practical predictability at smaller scales may be limited, output of high-resolution morphodynamic area models is mostly presented at the resolution of the computational grid. The so- presented fields typically are realistic looking, but not necessarily of similar quality at all spatial scales....

The accuracy of morphological predictions is generally measured by an overall point-wise metric, such as the mean-squared difference between pairs of predicted and observed bed levels. Unfortunately, point-wise accuracy metrics tend to favour featureless predictions over predictions whose features are (slightly) misplaced. From the perspective...

The present paper examines the generation and inter-annual evolution of alongshore variability in topography measured after the implementation of a sand nourishment. The magnitude of the topographic variability is quantified using 3.5 years of monthly survey data. The emergence and temporal change in alongshore morphological variability is...

The quality of a morphological prediction is often expressed by an overall grid-point based skill score based on the Mean Squared Error (MSE) between the predicted and observed bed levels (Sutherland et al., 2004). Although the MSE is a good measure of the overall error between model and observations, it tends to penalize rather than reward the...

Novel observations of surface grain-size distributions are used in combination with intra-wave modeling to examine the processes responsible for the sorting of sediment grains on a relatively steep beach (slope?=?1:7.5). The field observations of the mean grain size collected with a digital camera system at consecutive low and high tides for a 2...

Typically a beach is out of equilibrium after a nourishment is installed. To observe how a nourished beach behaves on the timescale of storms a monitoring campaign was set up at Vlugtenburg beach after a nourishment in the spring of 2009. Here we show a sediment budget analysis of the first 2.5 years for a coastal domain spanning 1750 m...

Field observations and numerical model simulations are examined to investigate the magnitude of vortical very low frequency (VLF) velocity fluctuations (i.e. large scale surfzone eddies) under different offshore wave forcing. Observations of vortical VLF motions under shore -normal wave incidence at Duck, NC, USA are re-analyzed and compared...

A one-dimensional hydrostatic version of the XBeach model (Roelvink et al., 2009) is applied to hindcast swash morphodynamics measured during an accretive, and an erosive tide at Le Truc Vert beach (France) in early spring 2008 (Masselink et. al, 2009; Blenkinsopp et al., 2011). Swash hydrodynamics are solved by applying the nonlinear shallow...

The cause of sediment suspension events during flow reversal under waves in the nearshore is not well understood. Vortex tubes and horizontal pressure gradients have been suggested to be the cause of the suspension events. A medium sized wave flume experiment has been conducted to give insight in the hydrodynamics of the wave bottom boundary...

A large multi-institutional nearshore field experiment was conducted at Truc Vert, on the Atlantic coast of France in early 2008. Truc Vert’08 was designed to measure beach change on a long, sandy stretch of coast without engineering works with emphasis on large winter waves (offshore significant wave height up to 8 m), a three-dimensional...

The effect of the longshore dimension on dune erosion is examined numerically with a 2DH process based model XBeach. Exploratory simulations are presented to examine longshore effects due to directionally spread waves, longshore variation in topography and longshore variation in bathymetry. The simulations reveal that alongshore sediment...

Nearshore rhythmicity is often initiated in the period just after a storm where the subtidal bar is turned alongshore uniform. The initiation time as well as the length scales of the created rhythmicity varies from one storm period to another. Here we show that the post-storm wave conditions are related to the initiation of the morphological...

Nearshore sandbars appear with various patterns which may change over time. From observations, these changes seem to be related to changes in hydrodynamic conditions, although observed length scales could not be related directly to occurring wave conditions. The current work investigated the role of both the concurrent and previous hydrodynamics...
