INTRODUCTION The scales of bathymetric change in shallow water near river mouths and inlets ranges significantly in both time and space. This variability is a result of complex fluid-sediment interactions near the seabed, and is driven at both large and small scales by tides, surface gravity waves, wind driven flows, and river discharges. Adding to the complexity is mixing by differing water masses, and, of particular interest here, boundary layers that span the water column. Sediment transport… CONTINUE READING
