A numerical model for shore-normal sediment size variation on a macrotidal beach

Auteur :
HORN, D. P.

Description :
This paper describes a computer simulation model which is designed to predict the selective shore-normal sorting of grain sizes in the nearshore environment. The predicted grain size is used in an hydraulic interpretation of grain size distribution of the intertidal profile, based on the hydrodynamic variations over a tidal cycle on a macrotidal beach. The model is successful in predicting the broad pattern of increasing grain size in the onshore direction which has been observed in nature.
