An understanding of sediment transport in estuaries is important to enable greater control of processes such as siltation, dredging, and possible pollution. The bottom sediment contained in estuaries is generally a mud and sand mixture, and it is this mixture which is entrained into the water column during periods of higher flow and redeposited during slack flow conditions. This report covers laboratory tests performed on a wider range of mixed mud and sand beds. It extends previous work to include wave erosion tests and erosion tests on undisturbed samples.
