Document Description
The goal of the proposed experiment is to improve understanding and modeling capabilities of breaking wave-driven mixing and transport of pollutants in the nearshore at alongshore distances of up to 5-10 kilometers (km) from a surfzone source. The mixing and transport of pollutants by breaking wave-driven process will be studied through a series of dye tracer experiments. The focus is on dry-weather conditions, when the Tijuana River flow is very small, and beach usage is at a maximum.
