However, others such as Christians who are undecided about the age of the Earth issue may be persuaded to accept the old age position if they are shown how sediment transport rates would have to be absurdly high to deposit some 4,000 feet of layers in less than half a year, as explained in the remainder of this article.
The longshore sediment transport rate is usually estimated based on empirical equation relating the longshore energy flux in the breaker zone to the longshore transport rate.
The vectors of sediment transport in barrier island systems dictate that the greatest thickness of sediment and the coarsest sizes of sediment are at the seaward margin of the estuaries.

This paper deals with the overland transport of soluble salt and sodium and their impacts on physical characteristics of surface soil, soil erodibility, and sediment transport under controlled flow conditions.
Erosion and sediment transport can be reduced with residue management, buffers, grassed waterways, and other conservation practices.
The icefoot protected the beach from wave activity, halting onshore, offshore, and nearshore sediment transport that might supply or remove sediments from aeolian activity.
He is also doing research on hydrodynamics and sediment transport mechanics.
