Abstract

The results indicate that a primary path of sediment transport is past the end of the groin and then immediately shoreward. After the 24hr interval, ~30% of the deployment volume was represented in samples onshore and downdrift of the injection point. The finings suggest that this groin does not contribute to downdrift erosion under the measured circumstances, but short-term, prototype studies such as these may not be representative of typical conditions in a nearshore system. -from Authors
