Statement: Longshore Sediment Supply
Abstract: This model shows a profile view of fluvial sediment supply from river(s) over a 2000 year period. There is no alongshore or offshore transport in this model. The color scale represents grain size and is shown at the bottom of the animation.
Without the effects of coastal processes that result sediment mixing the fluvial sediment deposition remains highly stratified.
