Abstract

Results are presented for cohesive sediment transport on a muddy inter-tidal zone at Portishead on the Severn estuary, U.K. Data for suspended solids concentration for calm and stormy conditions show the influence of waves in the surt zone, and further seaward. A turbulence model of the water column has been used to explain the turbulent transport mechanisms underlying a conceptual description of the vertical distribution of suspended solids concentration. The conceptual description for combined wave-current conditions proposes a near bed wave boundary layer dominated region, a region above the wave boundary layer controlled by turbulent diffusion effects and an upper region in which local bed generated turbulence is not of primary significance.
