Abstract

A comprehensive study of swash-zone sediment transport was conducted on a macro-tidal beach in Perranporth, UK.
The unique study is the first to simultaneously measure suspended sediment and sheet flow sediment concentrations
and near bed velocity on a natural beach. Data collected during the study will be used to address the importance of
sheet flow processes on swash zone sediment transport and morphology, the variability in the near bed velocity
profile and the importance of alongshore and vertical flows, cross-shore advection of turbulence and the inference of
swash zone forcing and momentum transfer from remotely sensed data.
