Abstract

In this study, the numerical simulation of tidal current and sediment transport in the Kanmon Waterway were performed by using a numerical simulation model FVCOM (Finite Volume Community Ocean Model (Chen et al. 2003)), in order to discuss the influence of the long-term fluctuation of mean water level on the sand waves. The numerical simulation results suggested that the spatial difference of the long-term fluctuation of mean water level in the Kanmon Straits slightly changes the tidal current around Tanoura Area, and consequently affects the development of sand waves.
