Abstract: This paper presents and compares field and analytical data on the net transport of sand under wave and tidal current action as measured and computed at the entrance to a large estuary on the south-east coast of Thailand. The field data comprised time histories over six weeks of wind speed and direction, tidal stage variation and the direct measurement of sand transport at two locations in shallow water using radioisotope tracer techniques. Analytical formulations were used to estimate wave conditions, tidal current velocities and sediment transport rates. Comparison of results showed that the analytical formulations predicted very well the magnitude and direction of the net transport of sand at the two locations over the six-week period where the field measurements were made. © 2021 Informit
