Title Lagrangian Tracer Transport and Dispersion in Tidal Inlets and River Mouths.
Publication Date Jan 2013

Personal Author F. Feddersen R. T. Guza
Abstract Our long-term goals include developing and field-testing numerical models of shallow water breaking waves and wave-driven processes, including currents, and tracer transport and dispersion. Improved prediction of the fate of terrestrial runoff pollution and other substances (e.g. fine sediment, chemicals) sometimes present in very shallow water. The objective of this project, to measure mixing and transport in a small tidal inlet, was achieved in the RIVET 1 experiment. During RIVET I, we measured transport and dispersion from within the New River Inlet to 2-3 km offshore and alongshore, at different tidal stages. Analysis of this diverse data set of waves, currents, stratification, Lagrangian drifter, and dye-tracers has begun.
