Transient Waves and Beaches
On the basis of field experiment that was held in October, 2016 in the study site of F. Nansen Institute of Oceanology BAS (Varna, Bulgaria) near Shkorpilovtsi settlement, is shown influence of different phases of storm on direction of sediment transport in coastal zone. During field experiment two storm cycles were observed and measured. Both storm cycles contain accretive phases with specific profile dynamics. During both accretive phases are characterized by reduction of peak wave period and local time segments of stabilization of mean wave period.
