In order to elucidate fine sediment transport process and resulting bathymetry evolutions, field surveys were carried out with monitoring of spatial distribution of suspended sediment and fluid mud in the estuarine system under a tropical climate environment with a wet and dry season. We successfully captured the difference between the wet and dry season in vertical structure of bulk density through the water column from the sea surface through consolidated mud bed. Observed data including the seasonal variation of fluid mud thickness can be applied for the modeling works of the fine sediment transport process in the target site, which is our future work.
