Coastal Processes at Cartagena2020-01-23
During a visit to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, the other week, Dr. Ulf Erlingsson of Lindorm, Inc. made some observations using a drone. The video below shows the interesting situation that is also visible on satellite images in Google Earth. This is the end of a coastal sediment transport and it ends in turbulence when an opposite direction current mixes with the high-turbidity nearshore wave-induced current. It would be quite interesting to see results of a study of that area using modern electronic instruments — such as the SediMeter and SediTrans.
