Preparations for large-scale GWK experiments in full swing

The preparations for the upcoming experiments in the Large Wave Flume (GWK) in Hannover are in full swing. A 30 m long test section is currently being set up in the flume and first wave runs are expected to start in early May.

Using complex instrumentation for the measurement of detailed transport processes the experiments will provide unique data for the wave-driven transport of graded sand. The data will be used to develop a sediment transport formula for the improved prediction of coastal erosion (WA 4).
