NWO Veni Award : Sediment transport by vortices: a fundamental study from the lab to the ocean

Prize: NWOVeniScientific


Vortices transport large quantities of sediment in the oceans. Researchers will investigate this mechanism for coastal areas through laboratory experiments and numerical simulations. This research will facilitate better predictions of sand loss from beaches, for example.
