Abstract

In the framework of an integrated research project on prediction of beach and sea floor topography changes in Java Sea, the development of a three-dimensional non-cohesive sediment transport model to predict suspended sediment fluxes has been carried out by solving the advection-diffusion equation. The velocity fields were calculated by using a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model of tide- and wind-driven circulation incorporating the influence of wind waves generated at the sea surface. The third generation wave model WAM (WAMDI^) was used to calculate the wave p
