FIELD OBSERVATION OF FINE SEDIMENT TRANSPORT PROCESS AROUND RIVER MOUTHS IN NORTH WESTERN JAVA ISLAND, INDONESIA
AbstractUnderstanding of transport processes of discharged sediment through the river in coastal area is crucial for prediction of coastal bathymetry evolution. In case that fine sediment is dominant in sedimentary system, the transport process becomes complicate with the formation of fluid mud, which may be an important role on the transport and distribution of muddy sediment. The aim of this study is to elucidate the fine sediment dynamics, which may have a key role on the deformation of the deltaic topography around the estuary, in a tropical climate environment where experiences apparent seasonal variation of river discharge due to the wet and dry weather condition.
