Back A Planning Proposal for Observations of Microtidal Morphodynamics in Muddy Environments in the Tidal Flats

Fiscal Year 2007
Division Graduate School of Engineering & Applied Science
Department Oceanography
Investigator(s) Stanton, Timothy P.
Sponsor Office of Naval Research (Navy)
Summary The proposed work is participating in planning for a major field experiment to provide new short-term (s(1 month)) and long-term (0(1 year)) in situ observations of macrotidal flat hydrodynamics, sedimentological processes, and morphodynamics relationship through unique multi-scaled surveying platforms, specialized instrumentation, and remote sensing techniques. These observations will be integrated into naval prediction models for muddy tidal flats.
