Abstract: The primary objective of this investigation was to increase understanding of mean suspended sediment concentration longshore sediment transport rates in response to varying offshore wave conditions. Explicit objectives were as follows: (a) assist and advise in the deployment and collection of field data using optical suspended sensors during WES experiments at Colorado River, TX, (b) assist in the analysis and interpretation of such data, (c) use such data to evaluate the ability ( wave-current interaction sediment transport theory to calculate the observed suspended load and longshore flux of sediment (d) prepare and deploy fiber-optic suspended sediment sensors during WES experiments at Colorado River, TX, and (e) analyze data collected with the fiber-optic sensor. Addressing these objectives requires accurate measurement of the time-varying concentration field and fluid forcing.
