My research focuses on sediment transport in a submerged flexible meadow influenced by waves and current. Previous studies have shown that the near bed turbulence is the main trigger for sediment resuspension. In my study, I will measure vertical profiles of velocity and sediment concentration under different hydrodynamics conditions and uses these measurement to predict the threshold level of turbulence for sediment resuspension and deposition. Moreover, I will also consider how submerged flexible vegetation influences the formation of ripples in wave and current flow.
