Abstract

One and two-dimensional, second order turbulence plant canopy flow models were developed for the purpose of estimating the effect of coastal vegetation on wind blown sand transport. The computer program that solves the governing differential equations uses measured leaf area density profiles and drag coefficients for crop plants similar in shape and size to the more common coastal vegetation in Florida. (Document has 57 pages.)
