    Longshore currents are affected by the velocity and angle of a wave. When a wave breaks at a more acute (steep) angle on a beach, encounters a steeper beach slope, or is very high, longshore currents increase in velocity. Conversely, a wider breaking angle, gentler beach slope, and lower wave height slows a longshore current’s velocity.   When adressing a model crash or bug, please remember to include an entire model setup in your post that reproduces the crash or exposes the bug. Also add the file. This is necessary information for people that are trying to help you. Including your model setup can be achieved by adding the zipped run directory (excluding output) as an attachment .

Nearshore currents over a barred beach by Garcez Faria, Antonio Fernando. Publication date TZ Topics OCEAN CURRENTS,OCEAN MODELS,HYDRODYNAMICS,BEACHES Publisher Monterey, Calif.: Naval Postgraduate School ; Springfield, Va.: Available from National Technical Information Service National Security.

nearshore waves and currents, including the details of the mean water level variations, on a barred bathymetry with multiple rip channels combined with a quantitative analysis of the nearshore momentum balances calculated from the measurements.

[7] In section 2 we describe the physical model and the experimental conditions. A field experiment to measure the horizontal and vertical structure of shore-parallel, nearshore currents was conducted at Wendake Beach, Georgian Bay, Canada, in Waves and currents were measured with continuous resistance wire wave staffs and bi-directional, electromagnetic current meters, respectively.

The nonlinear dynamics of finite amplitude shear instabilities of alongshore currents in the nearshore surf zone over barred beach topography are studied using numerical experiments. These experiments extend the recent study of Allen et al. [], which utilized plane beach (constant slope) topography by including shore‐parallel sandbars.

The model involves Cited by: Abstract. Although coastal environments are collectively characterized by change, the beach and nearshore zone is one of the most dynamic of these environments. The changes to which beaches are subjected may be seasonal or longer in duration; they may be as short as a single tidal cycle or even occur from one crashing wave to the by: induced currents.

Following the beach state classification of Short () and Short and Aagaard (), Aquitanian coast beach state is mainly an intermediate (d) double-barred beach. The nearshore is characterized by two distinct sand bar patterns: the crescentic bar system in the subtidal zone and the ridge and runnel.

Waves, currents, and the location of the seafloor were measured on a barred beach for about 2 months at nine locations along a cross-shore transect extending m from 1 to 4 m water : Robin Davidson-Arnott. Nearshore waves and currents over crescentic bars. the random-wave model SWAN to compute the hydrodynamics over the French aquitan coast nearshore bars.

As longshore currents move on and off the beach, rip currents may form around low spots or breaks in sandbars, and also near structures such as jetties and piers.

A rip current, sometimes incorrectly called a rip tide, is a localized current that flows away from the shoreline toward the ocean, perpendicular or at an acute angle to the shoreline.

The current velocity was calculated with the time and the length of the line. The transport direction of the float due to nearshore current was observed with a protractor. At each point, nearshore currents were measured three times.

It takes about 90 minutes to measure the nearshore currents along the HORS. UNESCO – EOLSS SAMPLE CHAPTERS COASTAL ZONES AND ESTUARIES – Waves and Sediment Transport in the Nearshore Zone - R.G.D.

Nearshore current below the wave trough level on a barred beach is often estimated with a conventional 2DH nearshore current model (e.g., Nishimura, ), in which the gradient of the radiation stress is the driving force of the nearshore current and the mass flux or the momentum flux of the surface roller is not by: However, the previous model has been only applied to the nearshore currents on the planar beach.

Therefore, Kuroiwa et al. () modified the previous model to be applicable to nearshore currents on a barred beach. Governing equations. The governing equations are derived from the 3-D Navier-Stokes by: 5.

The model involves finite-difference solutions to.Rip currents have been measured in excess of m/s (5 ft/s). Headlands, breakwaters, and piers influence the circulation pattern and alter the direction of currents flowing along the shore.

Where a straight beach is terminated on the down-current side by points or other obstructions, a pronounced rip current extends seaward.
